Is this inability to paste using the touch interface, an external keyboard or both?

There’s definitely some keyboard-related regressions when using Lightroom for iOS with a keyboard. The "Copy" dialog can no longer be dismissed using the Return key. The paste feature works when invoked through the menu in the top-right, but says "No settings to paste" when attempting to do the same with Command + V.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Cmd + V keyboard shortcut doesn’t work anymore on v4.3 on iPad Pro.

Until prior versions of LR for iPad pasting settings with cmd + worked fine, now it brings up a message that there are no settings to paste, even though they have been copied (and available to paste via on screen menu). Please fix.

Yes yes yes! Please fix the issue of not being dismissed by using the Return key. Omg that is driving me insane.

Same problem. CMD-V gets “no settings to paste” and return doesn’t dismiss the copy settings dialog. Really high priority fix for me! Without being able to sync settings across multiple photos and now also not being able to navigate and copy paste with the keyboard this makes editing long sessions on the iPad practically impossible. Thanks!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Problem with newest Lightroom for iPad - When using the keyboard, cutting and pas....

It does if you use the touch screen, but not command+c / command+v. WHen you go to paste, it says nothing to paste. There’s numerous issues that could/should be fixed to make it a stellar product. 1. The aforementioned issue. 2. The ability to paste edits/presets to multiple photos. 3. Profiles that were added on a desktop by third party presets like VSCO show up in Lightroom CC with NO WAY TO DELETE THEM. 4. I should have the ability to export my images with more options than just JPEGs. Specifically, quality, size, different formats, etc. Also, where the heck is Photoshop for iPad, this was promised over half a year ago.

I just get reply from email
“ Thank you for the reply. The chat got ended last time so we were not able to complete the troubleshooting. We would like to tell you that the Lightroom cc is basically a web based application and that will be more smoothly accessible with the touch or with the pen pressure on the Ipad. Go to an image and try the long press, the menu pops up with copy and paste. Keyboard will not be much compatible with lightroom cc in Ipad. You can easily access it in the desktop or laptop.”
Please let me know if your company will not support the keyboard function at Lightroom cc on iPad Pro! I will cancel the monthly payment immediately. I don’t expect the function can use at yesterday but loss after update.

Now copy and pasta the setting need a very trouble step 1.option—>2. Copy settings —>3. Select copy settings tick box —>4. Select another photo —>5. pasta setting . But keyboard only CMD+C —> next photo —> CMD+ v. Touch is very Time consuming. I am a wedding photographer , will have 3000pics photo every wedding . Is it not Possible use touch reply keyboard. If only can use desktop in Lightroom with keyboard function. I think I should be change another software .

The lack of the ability to edit multiple photos is not a “bug.” He has a valid point.

Yep, the ability to edit multiple photos was added to Android in the latest release, so is likely to come to iOS sooner than later.

But the broken Cmd V shortcut that this thread is discussing is purely a bug and the support guys were wrong to say "Keyboard will not be much compatible with lightroom cc in ipad"

I’m also experiencing the same issue. This greatly impacts how I use the Lightroom app as I copy and paste settings all the time and not having this breaks my workflow. I’ve been having to wait until I get home and do this on my desktop, because using touch is very slow and tedious. Please please please fix asap.

Lightroom Mobile (iOS) 4.3.1 was just released and contains a fix for this issue. Please update your App via the App store and let us know if things are working as expected now. 

Thanks for your patience!

Hello rikk , after quick test the update , it still have not enter confirm for the copy page.
1. Cmd copy
2. Go to select box ( and cannot use “enter” to confirm the selection) we need to touch for confirm.
3. Cmd v to pasta ( is it work)
Do we have better short cut to work on it

cmd + c (copy) = Works well
Press the “Return/Enter” key to confirm settings = Does not work
cmd + v (paste) = Works well

Thank you for the fix.

New feature request for iPad Lightroom mobile, the ability to paste settings to multiple photos instead of just pasting it one by one.
