I'm using Lightroom Classic 8.4 with Windows 10, and I'm noticing some weird things related to the preview for presets containing a radial filter, specially when working with portrait-orientation images.

1) If I create a top-left radial filter from a portrait image, then when hovering over it in the Presets panel, the preview will show it on the opposite side (right). But when applying it and moving the cursor away from the preset, it will stay in the right place.

2) If I try to apply the same preset to a landscape image, then both the preview and the applied filter will be on the opposite side.

3) If I create a top-left radial filter from a landscape image, and I choose a portrait image, the preview will be correct as I hover over the preset, but as soon as I click to apply it *and* move away from the presets panel, the real result will be upside-down in the image (it will be bottom-left).

Maybe the fact that presets created on landscape image work the opposite on portrait images is normal (I don't think it should be, though), but I think it's definitely not ok that the preview when hovering doesn't match what you are really getting.

This is a little complicated to understand (all this landscape-portrait-top-left-etc. thing sounds confusing), but if you watch the following video I think you'll get it (in the video I only show (1) and (2), but you can try (3) by yourselves). The short version is that something seems to be wrong when showing the preview for presets with radial filters on images in portrait orientation. 

If you can reproduce it, and you agree that the preview is not correct, can it be filed as a bug or be looked into? Thanks.
