Lightroom Classic: photo:quickDevelopAdjustImage documentation incomplete

Version 8 of the Lightroom Classic SDK states, for quickDevelopAdjustImage:
Sets the value of a Develop adjustment for the current photo. .. 1. settingName (string) a Develop parameter name (see the beginning of this namespace's documentation for possible values). 2. size (string or number) can be "small", "large" or a "number"

There are two problems with this:
  1. The beginning of the documentation for LrPhoto fails to have list at the beginning of the namespace. There is an extensive list in the middle of the documentation under photo:getDevelopSettings, but that carries the warning: "WARNING:The develop settings APIs are considered experimental. You should not depend on the contents of the settings table remaining compatible in future versions of Lightroom. The definitive list is the one shown in the UI." Is that the list we can use for quickDevelopAdjustImage or is there a better, more definitive list that should be posted?
  2. The size parameter can be 'small', 'large', or a number. however, the quick develop interface allows small or large increases and decreases. Is there a word for a small or large decrease, or are we stuck with only increasing by 'small' and 'large'. (Yes, we can use numbers, but those create many complications that could be avoided with the small and large keywords).

Hi Rory,

Please find the respone below:
  1. There is no separate list for quickDevelop and you can use the same getDevelopSettings list.
  2. Ranges of sliders are different and that's the reason we've used 'small' and 'large'. Small and Large varies for different sliders and these are aligned with the Quick Develop buttons one see in Library.

Thanks,
Bhargav

#2: but how do you decrease a setting. It seems like using "small" or "large" only increases a setting.

I've tested this action and I can only increase the parameter. Is there something like "small" or "large" to decrease the parameter? If not, you're missing an important part.
