Lightroom Classic: Selected pictures in develop mode all update to new preset

Hi all, I have been an avid LR user for many years and know almost all the ins and outs. However, since the latest update, I noticed something which doesn't work for me.

What I usually do, is work on the color images (wedding, newborn, day-in-the-life,..) I have shot. I then select all the images in the library module and make a virtual copy of them.  Next, I apply a preset for black and white, which syncs all the images.  I then go into the develop module with said selection and can work on only the black and white images.  So far, so good.  However, if I now want to change the B&W preset to a different one, it automatically syncs all black and white images to the new preset, whereas it always only changed the image that was open.

Any idea if I can change it somewhere? Otherwise - Adobe, can you please put back the previous version? This is really annoying.

It sounds like you have Auto Sync on in the Develop module, Robert, so you're editing all images you have selected at once. In the bottom right next to the Reset button, click on the switch next to Auto Sync to change it back to Sync.

Hi Laura, I have done as requested and uploaded the video here.  Not sure why, but Youtube has downsized the video heavily, so not sure if you can see this well enough? If not, I will share the video with you in some other way.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ekK-goOQNw

What I did notice, is that when I press on the preset in my presetmenu, all is okay and it is only changing 1 image over.  However, I always work with my Loupedeck + and have it setup with shortkeys.  For some reason, after updating LR, and I hit the preset button (P5), it changes every image to that preset, as you can see in the first part of the video.

Any ideas?

Did you reset your Preferences file as suggested by Laura Shoe and then restart LR before making the video? If the issue remains after resetting the Preferences file try using LR without the Loupedeck attached. That may be causing the issue.

I did do that. I work with Loupedeck all the time, couldn't use LR without it anymore, travels all around the world with me.  It seems to be some issue with the latest version of Loupedeck+/LR Classic... So I need to get in touch with Loupedeck support then?

Yes, but first check that you're using the latest LoupeDeck software version.

Thanks Todd, I always update to the latest version. Sometimes not for LRc, if the build is not stable to my standards.  Now, it is the latest version though... Thanks

Either the above or what you are initially looking at is the Built In JPG image that is inside every RAW file. And then LrC builds its own previews from the actual RAW Data and with that you are noticing a slight change.

Thank you, just shot me, but I don't think that is the issue, as in my history state, I can see the other images have also been updated to a new preset, which is incorrect for that particular image. Thanks for your comment though.
