LR should show me clones, adjustments, crops, redeye... are applied to current image

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Visual indicators for adjustment tools

I'd like to see indicators in the Develop right panel showing me if a crop is applied, clone/heals are in use, grad filter, redeye and/or adjustment brushes. The indicators would prevent errors when copying settings from a previous image - clone/heals are the big offenders and I sometimes don't catch that I'm applying settings across images that have a clone applied. Then, I get the email from the client asking WTF. I find it time-consuming to have to enable the features to see if there's clones or adjustments applied. The indicators would be immediate!

Easy add? Please add!

I like this idea. Would help especially knowing an image has a brush adjustment but cannot find the edit pins because they are obscured and lost in image detail. Happened to me so many times I know I brushed the image but cannot find the pin.

LR does show you if a Crop has been done. But not the other adjustments other than the icon that one or many adjustments have been carried out.
Personally I think that is enough.

The dotted square is for if there has been a crop applied and the other icon is if there are other adjustments made to that image.
If you aren't seeing these then it is a View Setting you have turned off.

The OP is referring to in the Develop module.

I pulled up Develop module and indeed those indicators for Crop are overplayed in the bottom filmstrip.
