Why do the adjustment panels on the Ipad version close every single time you leave them. It's really inefficient.

Hi Todd, have tried to replicate what you are meaning and found this: When I open the light panel and do some adjustments, then swipe left or right to the next picture, the light panel stays open.
But when I go to the overview , the gallery and click on a picture, then I find the light panel closed.
Is that what you mean?

Hi Peter. Thank you so much for looking. What I mean is when I go from the light panel to the color panel. Id rather scroll up and down like in classic then have to click it to open over and over.
     Same goes for cropping, brushes and presets. With these I have to click "done" to leave them. Why? It's just one more step. For example if I crop an image why cant I just click back to the adjustments panels when finished. Instead I have to click done then click back to adjustments. It seems like small things but when editing thousands of images these extra clicks really add up

Thank you for giving the details. Adobe support is reading here as well. The iPad Version is still lacking functionality compared to the classic version. I guess Adobe will try to bring such functionality first before they work on streamlining the user interface.

Thanks, it's a wonderful addition to LR's ego system. I'm really liking it. They just have some UI issues to work out. Syncing between Classic and CC is also confusing. Using words like "delete" are probably not a great long term solution. I import to classic, move images to the sync folder, edit on the ipad than "delete" them off the ipad and export through classic. The wording is down right scary during this process.

Hi Todd, LR CC mobile/desktop (some call it LR CC Cloudy) is not easy to understand. Some users have lost pictures because of misunderstandings. I have worked two years with Classic and Mobile in parallel using LR Classic plugins created by Jeffrey Friedl. These plugins enables you keep both systems in sync, but you still have to define which is the master and which is the slave after a change. Because I love to edit on my iPad I have given up LR Classic and switched to LR CC 1TB. I guess that Adobe will never have a 100% sync in both ways especially for the keywords. Mobile users have no affinity to enter keywords, the new feature is AI. I have many keywords and would be happy when Adobe implement the search for words in Album names.
