Camera Raw 7. When syncing Exposure for a number of images the exposure only updates on the screen viewable thumbnails. All other images are not synced. I have only found this problem on exposure so far all the others options seem OK. Same happens in Lighroom 4

And when you scroll further down, do the thumbnails get updated?

I have this problem. The sync function only applies to the first image of several selected. also if I select several images and and click on one adjustment to sync them all it will only change one image not all of them. Sometimes it wont even adjust the one image. I have the latest updates. If I shut the computer off and reboot it will work a few times but then stops. I have a 8 core 3.6gig amd proc. 16gig ram. win 7. the system runs great. the ram doesnt use over 5gig durring process.

I think I have the same problem too.
I am currently using v7.2.
I have found that selecting multiple photos in the filmstrip then changing setting like contrast do not update the contrast of all the selected photos.
The behavior I notice is that it sometimes did work correctly. And other times it may just update the changes made to a few photos.

I have also tested on the sync button and same results. Not all contrast being updated correctly.

A google search lead me to check with the camera preference on where to save the development setting, and I have confirmed it's setup to save into xmp files.

I notice that it happen to settings in the basic tab that can be updated using the "auto" button. Other settings like white balance, clarity, vibrance and saturation not affected.
Plus, it seems to happen only to photos that I have applied "auto" settings. Fresh photos before applying "auto" seems good. But I probably need more confirmation on this statement.

Anyone with idea on how to solve this?
