Linking radial filters in Lightroom

Hi! It would be great in Lightroom if you could link radial filters together so that they all maintain the same settings. I've found radial filters to be really handy for subduing a bright background, but often there are multiple areas that suffer from this and as it is you need to add a filter for each one. It would make things much easier if you could just draw all the filters, link them and then adjust them all as a single unit.

My apologies if this feature already exists and I just don't know how to use it!

Love the work, guys :) Keep going with your awesome product!

Yes please, I have just used multiple radial filters to create a light effect and now I want to further lighten them all. It would be really useful to group them all and apply exposure, colour balance and proportionate size adjustments consistently to all of them at the same time.

Nearest work-around would be to use the Brush adjustment (a really large brush is possible!).You can then 'spot' the brush on multiple areas and adjust all with the sliders. Also adjust the 'combined' effect of all the brush sliders with the "Amount" slider.

Thank you Robert. Will definitely try with the brush adjustment.
