In Develop, Basic panel, Shift plus double-click of the slider name sets the "auto" value for that slider in LR5. In LR6 it works on Exposure and Contrast, but appears not to do anything on Highlights, Shadows, Whites and Blacks. Is this a bug or an intentional change?

Double-click on the name (without shift) still seems to reset the value to zero.

Shift+double click works for me on all the setting you mention. However you don't necessarily get the "auto" value. For example, if I click the Auto button I get values for all the tone controls. Looking at Blacks I have a value of -9. If I reset all to zero then Shift+double click Blacks I get a value of -5. I expect this behaviour since a black value would be dependent on the values of all the other settings.

Running Win 7 with Lr CC.

My mistake - I think I was testing unusual images. Further testing shows it behaves as LR5.7.1

My apologies, ignore my earlier post.
