When working in the Develop module of Lightroom I hover over a preset to apply it and click the preset and it does not apply. It will show that the preset has been clicked as it is highlighted (as shown in the screen shot below) but it does not actually apply any changes to the image. If I go into the Library module and apply the preset through Quick Develop it will then apply to the image.
Is this a bug in v11 of the Develop module or is there some way I can solve this?
(I do have the latest update of Lightroom and I have a Creative Cloud subscription)
Would love any help I could get here!
Thinkg the preview has not been created after the edit. I notice in the filmstrip these are embedded previews in use (although the selected image is not shown in the filmstrip, perhaps scrolled)
If you use the navigator to zoom in to,say 1:1, does it pop?
I'm not the original poster, but I am having the same issue. Mine are not embedded previews and the presets still won't apply to the image. I tried zooming in and I think I heard Lightroom cackle at me for foolishly thinking it would cooperate that easily.
Using a Mac OS Catalina v10.15.7. I recently upgraded to v11.0 and have had no issues editing Smart Previews catalogs for my editing clients. I created a regular catalog and imported photos for a local client, and presets are not applying to the images in Develop mode. The presets will preview on the image when I hover, but the adjustments will not apply to the image or change the sliders. I saw there was an update available for v11.0.1 and updated in hopes it might fix it, but it did not. I can still manually edit and copy/sync edits to other images, but I can't click on a preset and get it to apply. I can still go in Library mode and select an image/multiple images and apply a preset in Quick Develop. Any thoughts / things to try to fix it so presets will apply in Develop mode again?

I am pulling my hair out and hope someone can help.
After LR was working perfectly it all of a sudden stopped applying presets to my images. When I rolled over a preset it would show a preview, but once clicked nothing would happen and the settings ar not applied to the photo.
What I have done to date:
-re-installed LR (directly from Creative cloud)
- Exported my presets and saved in antoher location incase they were corrupt, it still didn't work
-Created a new set of presets (same thing happens as described above)
-Shut down and restarted computer.
Can anyone help please?
Try resetting LR's preferences:
LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior. That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.
As a temporary workaround, try applying the presets in Library's Quick Develop panel.
Also, please do the menu command Help > System Info and copy/paste here the first ten lines so we can see exactly which versions you're running.
