LIGHTROOM: Would be nice to have a function to go back X-steps in the protocol for more than one picture at once. So i could select all pictures of my timelapse in one folder and go 2 steps back in protocol for EVERY picture with just one click.....now i have to select every single picture of 800.....

If all of the photos have the same settings, you could adjust the first pic, select it, and do Photo > Develop Settings > Copy Settings. Then select all the photos and do Paste Settings.

thx for the reply!
thats the problem ..they do not :/ i removed manymany birds with the spot removal tool but they are on different positions on different pictures and its a sunrise timelapse so all the develop settings are different too....and after i removed all the birds i discovered a sensor spot so i selected all the pics and removed it with auto-sync on! in LR5 it added this one repaired spot to every picture but now in LR it adds the spot and deletes all other removed bird stamps :O i didn ́t find an option to set the develop-copy-option to be additive!? So i wanted to step back in protocol for all the pics :/
