Lightroom 6: Applying Develop Presets in the Library Module is not possible.

In old versions of Lightroom it was possible to apply develop presets of any kind to one or more images via the context menu that appears when you right-click on a photo in the Library Module ("G"-View).

The appropriate section in the menu called "Develop Settings" is still there but it misses to show any user or even Adobe's presets. Where are they gone?
A screenshot (German Version):


I'm using LR6 with an upgraded LR5-Catalogue and the "store settings with this catalogue" setting in Lightroom Options enabled. Maybe that helps to trace the bug: If I click on the button called "Show Lightroom Presets folder" it shows the folder that is one level ABOVE folder where the catalogue file and all the preset folders are.

Can anyone confirm this behaviour?

The Develop Preset in the Context Menu is no longer there. This functionality was removed in Lightroom 6.

To apply presets to many images at once. Select the images in Grid and apply the preset via the Quick Develop panel.
