Transform settings don't always copy/sync correctly to other photos. To reproduce:1. Download this photo and make a copy of it in the same folder:https://www.dropbox.com/s/dflc03vke3be0zb/transform-bug.2020.02.19.jpg?dl=02. Import both photos.3. Select both photos and go to Develop.4. In the Transform panel, click Auto.5. Click Sync, check only Upright Mode, then Synchronize.6. Observe that the two photos have been transformed slightly differently.7. Reset the develop settings of both photos.8. Repeat steps 4 - 6, but this time check Upright Transforms in Sync.9. Observe that the two photos have been transformed slightly differently.See this thread for the original reports:https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/transform-tool-problems-since-latest-update-in-ligh...Tested in LR 9.2 / Mac OS 10.14.6.
Will this ever work? Every day I have to go through every photo for every room that I shoot and click update... that's thousands of clicks per week.

What are the precise steps you're taking? Can you post screenshots before and after showing it not working the way you expect?
My tests of LR 10.2 show that Copy Settings and Sync Settings correctly copy the Transform Upright Mode (Auto, Guided, Level, Vertical), provided the source and destination photos don't have any prior crop angle applied via the Crop tool. Auto Sync doesn't work, regardless of whether crop angle had been applied.
1. Select all the photos.
2. Edit the first photo in Develop.
3. Do Transform > Auto.
4. Click Sync.
5. Click Check None, then Upright Mode, then Synchronize:
Here's the before and after:
I've done more thorough testing of copying Transform settings in LR 10.3, and generally it doesn't work correctly. See here fo the test results:
I'd like to add that I'm seeing a behavior which I'm not sure has been mentioned in this thread (forgive me if I missed it).
I'm copying Crop and Transform settings from one Raw file and pasting them on a file that is an HDR of that same Raw file and an additional Raw file. The values for horizontal an vertical adjusted get "switched" and inverted. See screenshots.
These are the transform values that I copy:
This is what is pasted:
These images are all shot on tripod in near automatic fashion, so the image content varies mainly in exposure.
