  • Updated 3 years ago
Lightroom 6.2 update: the Temp slider does not work as in 6.1, e.g. when I click on the temp value (not the slider!) it increseas by some units... In previous version was an fixed value (50). Could you please fix this? Thanx

Windows or Mac? Can you describe a little bit more? I cannot reproduce the issue here. Are you click on the edit number field (on the right of slider) for the Temp setting?

I'm on Mac (OS 10.9.5 aka Mavericks)
I'm clicking on the number field (right side of the slider). Let's say I'm on 3.500K, when I move the mouse to the left it goes to 3448.
On the previos versions of Lightroom the increase/decrease was with an fixed increment.

Thanx :)

Hehe, it doesn't work also on the radial masks, when I try to set the exposure. The increment value was 10 in the previous version.

Not much an improvement I must say. The new version is a step backwards.

For me on Windows the Temp slider and others have always worked the way you describe LR 6.2 as working, now, the mouse dragging left and right moves an arbitrary, non-multiple-of-10 increment, and the amount that one pixel of movement causes depends on the width of the slider which is determined by how wide the panel the slider is embedded in is, where the wider the panel, the smaller the arbitrary amount of change.

What does change the slider value by a more regular-sized amount maybe 5 or 10 or 50 or more depending on the slider scale is using the up and down mouse keys, these change the slider amount by a more consistent number. For example the Temp slider changes by 50 when it is in the 4000-5000 range, at least.

All set, I went back to a previous version and all is fine.
The temp increments are done by 50 units when I click on the value box (on the right), exposure is also working great on radial masks.

Seems like this is an experiment or maybe a "forgotten" beta version of Lightroom released as a stable version. It may be hard to test different software (OS's)/hardware comibations, but hey it's not like I'm running an outdated OS.

Or maybe you should release beta versions and ask feedback from the public, like Apple does lately when they are too lazy (or maybe too busy) to test themselves. Then decide what to do with a "new improvement".
Might not be an imprivement after all...
