1. Enable the locking of file names.
2. Enable the locking of file ratings.
3. Add Notes - similar to Photoshop (and allow it to be exported to Photoshop?)
4. Enable the ability to lock the path location for importing.
5. Enable the creation of a LR preset to remove all Gradients, Filters and Adjustmet Brushes?
6. Allow the import location folder to be selected in the Catalog settings.

Thanks for considering these ideas!

Generally, it is recommended that you:

1. Don't combine feature requests. Split each into a separate post. That way people can vote for those they like.
2. Add your voice to existing feature requests instead of duplicating them. Several of these are duplicates.

I'm new to this forum so I appreciate the suggestion. In the future I will submit suggestions one at a time.

Thanks!

Re.5: Here is a preset that will remove all locals including gradients & adjustment brushes.

Instructions:
* Click the '+' button to initiate creation of a preset in Lightroom.
* Uncheck all settings, and name it "Remove Locals" (or whatever you prefer) - then click the 'Create' button.
* Context-click it and choose "Show in Explorer (or Finder)".
* Open with plain text editor.
* Replace:

settings = {
},

with:

settings = {
-- brushes:
PaintBasedCorrections = {},
-- spot removals:
RetouchInfo = {}, -- simple spots
RetouchAreas = {}, -- squiggles..
-- gradients:
GradientBasedCorrections = {}, -- linear
CircularGradientBasedCorrections = {}, -- radial
-- red-eye:
RedEyeCorrections = {},
},

* re-save the file.
* restart Lightroom.

Similarly, if you want to kill the point curves, include these lines in the settings:
ToneCurvePV2012 = {}, -- RGB (luminance)
ToneCurvePV2012Red = {}, -- Red channel
ToneCurvePV2012Blue = {}, -- Blue channel
ToneCurvePV2012Green = {}, -- Green channel

Give it a try!
