Here's what I know about it: The new Preview feature in Camera Raw
set the before state using the keyboard shortcut Alt/Option P. If you want to preview changes only in a specific panel (such as the Detail panel), you can do this by visiting the panel, setting the before state (press Alt/Option P), making the desired changes, and comparing before/after (press P)
You have to set the "Before" state - Preview is not actually panel specific.
Hmmm... I'm re-learning the basics for the first time using Lynda.com and they really emphasize that preview is panel-specific. I'll be calling Adobe first thing in the morning and see what they say. It's a pretty terrible feature to not have/have removed. I'm figuring a non-destructive program like Camera Raw would be able to have this feature as the basis of the nine panels.
I shall keep you updated!
Thx for the link!
Made the call to Adobe and the Tech Support team agrees that Camera Raw should not need to be told to remember the base file. They troubleshot for about an hour and have escalated the call to Senior Team, as we were unable to fix the situation.
Stay tuned, folks, should have further contact with the Adobe team within 48 hours...
I assume you have at least version 8.4 of ACR? The latest version (just shipped TODAY, apparently) is version 8.5.
Yep, using 8.4.1
Gonna try the upgrade and see what happens.
