After running the HDR Photo Merge once, I no longer get the HDR Dialog box (that includes things such as de-ghosting level).  It seems to automatically use the setting from the first merge for subsequent merges.  How can LRC be reconfigured to present the dialog box again?  I hope a full preset rest is needed.

You are invoking it using the menu Photo > Photo Merge > HDR rather than the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + H? The latter runs the merge without displaying the dialog, using the previous settings.

 

Assuming you are using the menu, the next step is to try resetting preferences:

I was using the menu Photo>Photo Merge>HDR.

I did reset the Preferences and that solved the issue.  Now I get the dialog box each time.

Glad that resolved it. It's unfortunate that Adobe has never fixed LR's design flaw where it not infrequently corrupts its preferences file.
