Hi. Can we please back the following functions from LR classic?

1. 'V' for converting to B&W
2. 'cmd+D' for duplicate or 'create virtual copy' function.
3. ability to keep the 'photos' (albums, recently added etc) tab open when switching back to grid view.
4. quick collection.

I agree on the first 3. For the last, you can already do it. Just create an album called Quick Collection and right-click to set it as the Target Album.

Thanks Victoria, I appreciate your reply.
How do I quickly add photos to the 'quick collection' album?
In LR CC you used to be able to hit 'B' and it would do it.
Really quick way of making selections.

Also is this the best place to submit feature requests to Adobe? Do they view/comment on this forum?

Yep, this is the spot. It's generally best to split requests into separate threads because then people can vote on them. Combined threads have a tendency to get lost more quickly. The two shortcut ones could be in a single thread, but I'd move #3 to a separate thread and explain a bit more about how it'd help your workflow.

Consider adding your voice to existing requests"

#4 is possible per Victoria's instructions.

As for the other two - read this: 

Feature Request best practices: 

Thank you for your enthusiasm for the Lightroom family of products. For your Ideas to gain more prominent notice and have maximum impact with the team, there are a few things you could do to help.

Ideas, or feature requests as some call them, work like this on the Feedback Forum:  Each individual Idea is single post anchoring a thread. All of the people who have a similar idea and relate their rational will be merged into a single master post that contains all the comments on a single topic.  This has a few advantages:

1. It gives Adobe a place to accumulate votes (by either creating a thread that is merged into the master thread or by hitting the [Me Too] button in the upper right corner. Adobe can see at a glance, search for, and rank the top features being requested without having to search for scattered posts. The engineering staff can read the user’s comments and divine the best ways to implement a given request.

2. By being a part of this master Idea thread, when an Idea comes to fruition and becomes an active feature in the software, Adobe updates this thread. Participants in the thread, those who’ve been merged in and those who have hit the [Me Too] button will be notified by email to updates and feature announcements related to the original request.

You can help us out by doing a few things to maximize your ideas’ impact.  First, if you have an idea, search to see if idea is already posted as a formal Idea. If it is, hit the [Me Too] button and if you like add your individual comments to the thread. Second, if you don’t find the idea is already posted, create a new thread and post your idea for a new feature.  Please keep the Ideas as one idea per thread so that we can merge them with the correct master threads if necessary.  We don’t have a way to merge an Idea into multiple threads so if you make multiple feature requests in a single post, it is likely to get lost in the shuffle, lessening its impact,
