Lightroom: Settings missing from dialog, under Update (existing) Develop Preset

#Lightroom4: When updating an existing Develop Preset, the Settings checkboxes do not include Crop, Spot Removal, Red Eye, or Adjustment Brush. Is this because these are distance-reliant values? Meaning you can't necessarily predict the input resolution dimensions, therefore, these cannot be applied as a preset (value may go out of range or have no location)?

If there is no reason why these are omitted, you should add them back in...

Crop is in great demand - but not supported under the hood (in presets), not id orientation.

The others are supported under the hood, but omitted from UI - dunno why.

You can add spots n' paint to a preset using this script:

'Add Spots Or Paint To Preset'

It does not do red-eye, but could.

Script is free, written by me, and available here:

PS - consider the 'Dev Preset Info' script too - it shows which groups are already included in a preset, so you know which to update.
