So, some point about presets
Thanks for your reply. I am aware of all the points you listed.
I should have added the presets I have imported in LR have been working fine for months, up until recently. It's a completely new issue.
Are they in the correct folder? What folder? Perhaps a screenshot of the folder.
Have you considered restoring (a.k.a resetting) the preference file. I have no idea if the Adobe Techs tried that. Logically they would have. But.
The preference file can get corrupted leading to buggy behavior. The preference file will survive updates, upgrades, uninstalls, reinstalls.
Also, to double check, and as the bad behavoir is intermettant, I doubt this one.
File and Folders security MACOS Catalina and beyond
As the Adobe Techs talked Admin rights, just maybe.
A bit of extra reasoning to check develop presets file location. Turns out in v10.3, Adobe changed that.
see " File location changes for Develop Presets" in:
Any newly created develop preset will now be stored at the following locations instead of the existing hierarchy-based file structure. macOS - /Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings Windows - C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings This will not impact the file structure of the existing presets stored on your system.
That last bit seems to indicate you should not be having a problem file location wise, but??
Thanks so much for those replies. Looked into those and file permissions are all fine and the presets are in the correct folder. I reverted LR back to an older version last week, and it worked for a few days, but now it's back to the same problems. I am at a loss of what to do from here, unless I restore to factory settings, which I'm not really keen on but may be my only option.
