Shift Modifier no longer makes bigger changes with mouse hovering over basic sliders

Title says it all: in previous versions the shift modifier made larger jumps with the mouse hovering over basic adjustment sliders (example: exposure will change in 1/3 stop increments with shift modifier depressed and 1/10 increments without).  This was a big time saver which has gone missing :(  Strangely, Alt/Option modifier still allows minute changes with mouse hovering over basic adjustment sliders.  Please reinstate the shift modifier mode!!  Thank you :)

Which OS Dave? Are you seeing this when using the up/down keys, or just with the mouse scroll wheel?

Windows or Mac?  What version of Lr?

Are you hovering over the slider itself or the numbers to the right of the slider?  I could be wrong, but I believe the 1/3 stop/0.10 increment difference with the shift key only happened when you were hovering on the number portion.

Holding the shift key down while moving the slider itself slows the slider down so you can make smaller adjustments.

Both are still working for me in Lr CC 2015.8 on Win10.

Thanks Tom. I'm on MacOS but it was my own stupidity that broke my Lightroom!  Back working now but thank you for taking the time to write in!

Hi Dave. I can't reproduce it on the same OS, so reset prefs would be my first thought. How do I reset Lightroom’s Preferences?

Thanks Victoria!  DOH! It was my own stupidity (I was testing motibodo programming and it broke the shift+up/down keys in Lr).  Thanks for confirming it was working on your system: led me to fix my error.  Cheers!
