Lightroom Classic CC 7.3.1 won't update my default settings

Since the new Adobe Color profile was introduced, I decided to adopt it as my default profile for my raw images. I had previously been using Adobe Standard. I have tried several times to change my default settings to include that profile as part of my default settings. However, every time I import new images the Adobe Standard profile is applied. I have reset my preferences in an attempt to correct the problem, but that didn't work either. I'm using Lightroom Classic CC 7.3.1 on Windows 10.

If I update my camera defaults and reset the images, Lightroom will apply the Adobe Color profile as it should as long as I'm using Lightroom following the import. However, if I close Lightroom and then use it the next time to import, it will apply the Adobe Standard profile to the raw images. This is an anomaly that I have replicated several times before I have bothered to report It.

Incidentally, I attempted updating the defaults by the alt-reset method as well as using the update default settings option in the menu. I used both methods multiple times in an attempt to make the default settings stick. Neither method seemed to work.

Lightroom Classic CC 7.5 was released today and should address this issue.  If you don’t see the update in your Creative Cloud App, hit the [Ctrl/Cmd]+ [Alt/Opt]+[R] to force a refresh. 

Give the new version a try and let us know if it solves the issue.
