LIGHTROOM - Shortcut bug in adjustment brush sliders (works on main sliders)

On the most recent version of LR CC2015, the shortcuts for the fine adjustment of sliders CHANGES between the main sliders and the "brush" localized adjustment sliders. Alt+down arrow and Alt+up arrow work if you hover over the main sliders as they should.

To get that shortcut to work on the brush adjustment sliders, you have to hover over the number to the right. It won't work hovering over the slider like it should (another shortcut should work over the numbers...). This is a BUG. And in older versions did not do this. I cannot identify exactly what rev/version this change occurred. But those of us that use jog/shuttle devices sure notice it.

It is working as expected for me. I can hover anywhere on the slider and use the shortcut to move the slider.

Try resetting your preference file: Close Lightroom: Hold down [Alt/Opt][Shift] and launch Lightroom. Chose the [Reset Preferences] button.

Huh....are you using "alt" first for the more fine adjustment?
This absolutely definitely was working like that for me. With the only difference might be I was using a jog/wheel device but all it does is send keystrokes.

My shortcut worked on the main adjustments....did squat on the adjustment brush sliders until I slid over to the numbers which should have been another shortcut. But I already said all that!

Hmmmm....I know it did this the entire last editing session I was in. And I know I double checked those shortcuts before I sent the first post.

I am offsite but will absolutely re-test this when in front of LR again....
Also, there might have been one update of LR since that editing session.

Okay, tested again. I am now on most recent version. the "alt+ up arrow" down arrow now works on both the main slider and the number both on main area and adjustment brush.

Not sure if it was a glitch or if something changed since the last version.
I know for a fact for a whole editing session it would not work on adjustments...
I will post again if it happens again and note what triggers this behavior.
