Refine Photos function in Develop would be nice

I use the Refine Photos option often when culling images from a large shoot in the Library Module. It would be helpful if it was in the Develop Module as well. Often I dip into Develop to see if an image has the necessary data in the shadows or something similar and end up finishing my culling there. Then I look for the Refine Photos function and have to switch back to Library to find it.

AUTO doesn't work for you? 
  • highlight the range of photos
  • turn on Auto Sync
  • click Auto button in the Basic panel 
Just tested it, it still works.

The OP is referring to the menu command in Library.... Library > Refine Photos.

As John said, I'm talking about the command Refine Photos, it changes all unflagged to rejects and removes the flags from the others...gives you a clean slate to further cull and rate.

Refine Photos only works on displayed photos, Steve - hence in Loupe view in Library it only acts on that one photo, as opposed to what it does in Grid view, acting on the entire collection/folder. Therefore if it was available in Develop it would only act on the one displayed photo and wouldn't give you want I'm guessing you'd want.

Yes, but the filmstrip is always visible along with its flags and ratings. So, the procedure is the same in Library or Develop. You keep the image at loupe view so you can see it, evaluate it and mark it, then I think you should be able to assign the Refine command to the group.
