Lightroom Mobile: Speed rating while editing / customizing gestures

Lightroom 3 has „intentionallly“ broken a number of very quick and effective features of Lightroom 2 on iPad/iPhone, which both frustrates me and slows down my photo editing on the iPad quite a bit.Here’s a list of things that frustrate me the most:1. I love the speed rating feature of Lightroom and I’m grateful that it returned to the app. However, in order to rate a photo, I now have to select the „Rate & Review“ mode first. Previously, I could use speed rating directly while editing pictures. Now, if quickly want to rate or add a star to an image I just edited, i need to click on review, add the rating, and then click back on edit in order to process the next image - that’s three clicks instead of one swipe! Therefore: please bring back speed rating to th edit mode!2. You changed a lot of the gestures in Lightroom 3, especially there is no quick gestures anymore to paste edit settings (the long press is now the compare original/edited photo). I used the copy/paste gesture a lot, and now if I want to do this, I need to click on „...“ in the top right, choose „copy settings“, go to the next picture, click „...“ again and choose „paste settings“ - that is very cumbersome! I know that people have different workflows, but for me that’s just too many clicks.Therefore: please allow a customization of gestures for different commands!3. One last smaller issue: ratings of photos are only shown in the grid view or in the “Rate & Review” Mode, but not in the edit mode (neither in the picture info nor in the image bar at the bottom), please add them again!Adobe, please fix these things! Lightroom is such a great app, but it really annoys me to see you killing very useful features (that were there before!).

Hi Gunnar,

Thanks for your input!

These are all really cool ideas. If you make each one a separate post as an Idea then other members can vote on them too.
