LIGHTRTOOM 5 - adjustments carried over when moving to next image

Downloaded LR5 today. Upgraded my LR4 catalogue.

In Dev module. If I make an adjustment (example +33 exposure). Then hit Cmd Right to go to next image. The adjustment is carried over to the new image. This did not happen in LR4 and shouldn't happen in LR5.

If I enter the adjustment - then hit enter, then Cmd Right, the adjustment is not carried over.

There are other issues as well. Sometimes if there is history. Then the adjustment is carried over - however, by hitting a previous state - then the last state - it corrects the adjustment back to how you previously had it set.

This is really annoying. I don't know if it's a bug or just my installation.

When you say "make an adjustment" are you using the basic panel or the local adjustment brush? I do not see this when I adjust exposure in the basic panel.

If you do not apply (or close) the local adjustment brush when moving from one image to the next, the settings of the brush will be maintained. No changes are actually applied to your image, though, until you make a brush stroke. This is consistent behavior with Lightroom 4.

Becky - this has nothing to do with adjustment brushes. As stated - I am talking about EXPOSURE adjustments as an example. However, I am seeing similar things with White Balance adjustments too.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for clarifying. I think I have figured out what you are seeing. For me, this happens on Mac, when I change the exposure value via the numeric text box, and leave the text box active when switching to the next image. Using sliders, it does not happen. If the text box is not active when switching to the next image, the issue does not occur. Does that describe what you are seeing?

Hi Becky - Yes, precisely.

In LR4 this did not happen. I have always advanced images by simply hitting Cmd Right or Left. That should simply proceed to the next image - not do what it's now doing. Because now I am forced to press enter before moving onto the next image.

In fact, even though the settings get carried to the new image - they aren't actually there. If that makes sense. Because if you hit twice back in history states and then forward again, it goes back to how it should be. So the changes that are happening are weirdly stuck in some kind of temporary state.

Bump - I've not heard back from you to confirm or deny that this issue exists?

It's reproducible on my system every time. I hope that it will be corrected in a future release - or maybe it won't?

Hi Paul, sorry for the delay. I was able to repro the issue and logged a bug.

This should be fixed in Lightroom 5.2, available now. Read more about it here: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/
