    hovering over presets siddenly stopped working in main screen in LR

    amys77153694

      I have LR 4. My small thumbprint navigator panel in the top lefthand corner is still allowing me to preview presets but is no longer synching up with my main viewing panel for hovering over presets. It worked to preview them in the main panel until yesterday. What did I press and what can I do to fix this issue? Thanks!

          Hi amys,

           

          You would only be able to see the preset preview on the navigator panel. You have to click on the preset to see the effect in main window.

           

          I can understand that navigator thumbnail is sometimes not enough and a larger view would be great.


          But this functionality is not yet available in Lightroom.

           

          Regards

            Thanks so much for your reply. I have reached out to a number of places and heard this same thought echoed from a variety of sources. This is very odd bc I DID have this function and I'm not sure how it worked  or how I had it -- maybe I had a live secondary window on full was one person's thought. Or possibly it is because I have a version available from my university where they had both student and teacher options available (not sure if the instructional versions had something that would mimic this?). Anyway, if it was a bug somehow, is there a way to sync up the navigator panel and the main window at all? I tried the live secondary window but this did not work to get me back to what I had before. I've used the program for several years, as it is version 4, so I have no idea how I had this capability and also had no idea it wasn't available until it went away on mine and I started researching this. Would there have been some kind of bug or thing to create this to happen?? I'm being totally honest that I had this capability and am absolutely dumbfounded to keep hearing that it's just not available in LR. ????

              It's always been the case, in all versions of LR, that when you hover the mouse over a preset in Develop mode, the Navigator preview updates but not the main window.  Many people have requested that ability over the years. I'm not sure what you might have been observing -- are you sure you weren't actually clicking on the preset? 

               

              If you want the ability to quickly preview presets, you might check out the Any Preset plugin, which lets you use the cursor keys to quickly preview a large number of presets in the main window.

                Does your plug-in work with LR 4?

                  Does your plug-in work with LR 4?

                  Unfortunately not -- it relies on features of LR 5 not present in LR 4.  Sorry about that.
