Lightroom 5.6: When applying a preset in process 2012 to a photo in process 2010 almost all settings in graduate filters are lost (saturation and sharpness are translated to new process but no others). If I first change the process of photo 2010->2012 and then apply the preset, everything will be correct.

Its same issue for adjustment brush and radial filter as well.

Yeah, that's pretty-much how it works.

At the risk of stating the obvious, the solution is:

Convert to 2012 before applying 2012 adjustments.

Don't get me wrong: I think handling could be improved, but for now - do what ya gotta do..
