Feature Request for Lightroom - 'Sync Settings Presets' - so that we can save custom preset combinations of settings to sync instead of just 'select all' and 'select none'.
Especially useful when you want to paste certain combinations of settings. For example, paste all settings except for brush, gradient, radial, upright transformations and crop adjustments etc.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Settings Sets on Synchronise Develop Settings.

I frequently edit one photo and then use "Sync" from the develop module to apply the develop settings across the series of photos shot in the same conditions. Mostly I only sync the settings that don't depend on the framing of the photo, so no crop, spot, adjustment brushes, or transforms. However, sometime I just want to sync white-balance, or just crop. I have about four commonly used combinations.

I would find it very convenient to have selectable pre-sets on the sync panel. This would also work for the "copy develop settings" operation. This would save having to either "check all" or "check none" and then rebuild my settings.

How about also finally updating the Sync window so that most users can make sense of it, instead of having to search for a setting which doesn't align with the tab-names in develop?
Here's a mock-up i made years and years ago when in pre-release...

While you're tracking this request, don't forget ACR folks want parity with features like this.  And for us, you won't even need to update the Sync Settings dialog as Earth so rightly requests in LR.<G>
