    Why are clipping adjustments in the basic panel not being saved, updated or shown in the histogram? I am using LR 5.7 on a MAC OSX 10.8 etc.

          Here is more information and hopefully a better explanation. My version of

          LR-5.7 (OS X 10.8.5) apparently does not save the .NEF (Nikon RAW) edits

          done in the basic module. That means that I can correct exposure,

          highlights, shadows etc. but once I go to another picture and returned to

          the edited one the histogram (on the edited photo) and specifically the

          clipping triangles are white or some other color. This is normally suppose

          to indicate that some channel or all channels are clipped in the

          highlight/shadow areas. If I adjust any slider in the Basic panel even as

          little as one +/- value or press the J-key, the histogram will now show the

          original edit. Moving on to another photo and then returning to to

          previously edited one and again the edits are "not saved" and I have to hit

          the J-key or adjust a slider to see the previously edited information

          reflected in the histogram.

           

          This is especially frustrating for fours reasons. If I have edited a shoot

          and return to it I cannot see from the clipping information whether the

          original edit was correct and of course I might re-edit it (to some now

          incorrect value). This brings up the second issue synchronization. I can't

          rely on it because if I go back to fine tune a specific image in the batch

          the triangles are white or some other color for that and every image. I have

          to hit the J-key to show/hide clipping or the back slash key to see

          before/after previews. This is the third issue which is very time consuming

          and inefficient regarding my workflow. The forth issue is that I have

          noticed that normally when an image is saved in PS, LR adds a copy of the

          saved version to its catalogue. I have noticed that the PS to LR saves are

          all wrong in terms of exposure (they are much lighter in tone) than the

          original LR edit and the PS edit on my screen. If I check the PS to LR photo

          in LR I notice that the Basic panel values have been changed and that I have

          to sync the image with the originally edited RAW/NEF LR file to get it to

          look the same.

           

          Note 1). I am using an Apple cinema display and a calibrated Eizo ColorEdge

          monitor to view my NEF files. I have reverted back to using LR 4 however I

          am not sure if I should expect compatibility problems with Camera Raw 7.4 in

          LR 4 vs. Camera Raw 8.6 in LR 5.

           

          Note 2.) I am going to do an import converting everything to .dng  to see if

          this is a work around.

           

          Note 3). I would be interested in knowing if this issue is related to the PS

          RAW engine ver. 8.6, the Adobe created NEF calibrations or LR 5.

           

          Note 4). I have duplicated this issue in OS X 10.8.5, OS X 9.xx and OS X

          10.10.1

           

          Hopefully someone else has noticed this problem. Any shared information

          would be valuable. Thanks for the reply.
