Not sure if this have been suggested before, however it would be great to be able to have an additional keyboard short cut to copy all the previous photo's settings to the next photo, other than the spot healing adjustments. The copy previous shortcut is brilliant but I often have to adjust the spot healing positions because although the lighting situation is similar the content isn't and therefore the 'pick up' position is wrong for the spot being 'healed/cloned'.

Currently I'm working around the problem by doing all my adjustments in one go, then doing the crops and then doing the spot healing, however it would be good to be able to do it in one fell swoop.

It would also be great to be able to save presets in the Sync command, allowing you to choose more than the current 'all' or 'nothing' selected. I often am syncing basic exposure corrections but don't want to sync HSL adjustments, or I might want to sync a graduated filter only and being able to set up some presets would be a real time saver.
One obvious advantage is being able to keep the Process Version selected if you select 'None' - how many people realistically sync image settings from different Process Versions? The Sliders working in different ways and therefore are unlikely to be 'simpatico' So creating a Preset with 'None' selected other than the Process Version would be a great time saver. Keeping the option to sync across Process versions would then cover the odd occasion it might be required.
It could be a dropdown list like on the K brush, additionally there is space to have a couple of customised buttons to call a specific preset from the list. Very speedy.
Don't forget to click the +1 button if you like
