Lightroom Classic: Develop panels using too much space in Solo mode

The following screen shot shows how the Tone Curve tool sometimes displays the extra space at the bottom when coming in from another develop tool. I”m using Lightroom Classic CC, version 7.4, but I have noticed this in earlier versions. Clicking on the point tool box to change to point curve display and back to the parametric display always corrects the problem. This has been an intermittent issue that happens, seemingly, at random after selecting the Tone Curve from another tool. Anyone else having this problem?



I’m using an iMac 27”, late 2012, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, with 32 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 memory. Video card is an NVIDIUA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB. OS X version 10.13.6.

Sorry, I'm not seeing what you report above (extra space at bottom). The two existing points shown appear to be correct for a linear curve.

The curve is fine, I'm just talking about the space below the word "Linear." This is the space where the sliders for the parametric curve should appear. In this case, I'm in point mode and it's leaving space for the sliders and not closing up the box. It's not a major issue and only happens randomly. However, it is a bug that Adobe should isolate and eliminate.

Interesting, I see it appear intermittently in Solo mode with other panels -- Detail, Transform, HSL. Here's a screen recording showing the problem with Transform and HSL:

Great video of what's happening. I haven't noticed it in other panels, for me, it's just in the Tone Curve panel.

I think the issue is when you click on HSL vs Color to reveal that panel. HSL gets cut off if it's set to Color and you go back to the panel by clicking on HSL. If you have it set to HSL and go back to the panel and click on Color, you end up with too much space. In the case of Transform, I think the extra space is always there to accommodate messages/instructions for upright, etc.

I see this issue most frequently with the Detail tab...

Yeah, it's been that way for a few versions now. At this point, it's a feature, not a bug.
