Sync Settings not working

I'm having an issue with synch settings all of a sudden.  Making changes in one file, I should be able to select another file and click the 'sync settings' to get the other files to have the same settings.  As of today, doing so does not export those settings to the other selected file(s).    The adjustment icons appear on the selected files, but when you look at the images in 'Develop' there have in fact been no synced changes.  I've tried updating my MacOS  (10.13) and my Lightroom (2015.12).  I've even reset my preferences, all to no use.  Thanks ahead of time for help.

I figured it out.If the source image's WB has not been changed from the raw file's imported setting, i.e. the WB panel says "As Shot", then when you synchronize or copy/paste from the source image, what is set in the target is "As Shot", and NOT the actual settings from the source image.  I.e. instead of pasting the source image's Temp/Tint values, it just resets the target image to ITS OWN "As Shot" values, having nothing to do with the source image's settings.If the source image's settings hav...

Mein Gott, I've had this problem trouble me for a month or two and it's actually just related to White Balance and that silly "As Shot" flag. First changing the white balance to something else and then syncing settings worked for me as well. Thank you!

There is an update to V 7.1. Install that and test.

done - no change, no fix unfortunately. Is there any other way to post errors than this forum? The release notes for 7.1 mention only so few known bugs - and no words about bugs and performance issues discussed in this forum :I(

It still doesn't work on Windows 10, although it works on Mac.

Could it be the configuration of my PC?

I doubt this to be a configuration issue.

Did you read the accepted answer?  You cannot sync "as shot" settings -- well, you can but it just changes the target image's setting to "as shot" (i.e. the target image's as-shot values) instead of copying the source image's numerical parameter values.

My answer was correct even that I misread sync as cloud sync and not sync over a bunch of pictures. My error.

No as a work around for the error:

Set as shot, if not as shot. Change to custom.

I don't think that this is a bug. I think it is by design.

Are you referring to 'As shot' under WB settings? (I don't know of another place). If so, I don't think this has anything to do with 'As shot' vs another white balance setting since it affects all colour settings including those generated by the user in LR (ie not jjust Temp/Tint) these are by definition not 'as shot'. I have also found it makes no difference whether WB changed from As shot to Custom once this problem starts. Even if it did, why woulkd it be by design? What's the advanatage? I think it still points to a bug because an extra step required to make a previously working feature work again is a bug, particularly if it is intermittent.

Given the variation in timeframe for people finding this probelm - e.g. dphershman reported this 10 months ago, but I've only had it a month or two - there must be some action that triggers it...I wonder what?

I figured it out. The pop up window was showing on the secondary display, but the secondary display was off. All I had to do was turn the secondary display on, drag the window to the display I always use, and then it was fixed forever.

Well it's happening with me, I have source image which was cropped because of camera settings and I recovered the edges through DNG recover edges plugin, once I recovered the edges and changed the image setting from AS SHOOT to Original, and tried to sync the same setting for rest of the images, it does not worked, I called the Adobe technical team and wasted whole night with them, but they were failed to resolve the isssue, I have hunderds of images in one Time Lapse and I can't change there settings manually, some sequences are over 1000 images.
This bug started last night, before it was working fine, I tried to install the old Lightroom versions, even tried to change the catalog and many other ways, resetting preferessings, going to default settings, whatever possible I did, but nothing work, this is a big bug for lightroom and they must address it seriously.

Just ran into this problem, and it is not due to syncing to a "as shot" image. I set the first image from "as shot" to "daylight." Then when I sync all the other images, the basic panel for each image says it is set to daylight, but the Temp and Tint settings are still the "as shot" settings; different for every image, not set to the "daylight: vlaues.

 

Never saw this on previous versions.

Previous command is doing the same thing - says it set white balance to Daylight, but didn't do it.

I think the Develop Parameters Sync, i.e. WB is working _somehow_ in the new version (10.1). However, if the file that we want to paste the settings from another one has already been "synced", then the new settings don't apply. At least I had to reset all files I wanted to paste the new development settings to. Then it works, but sometimes when I paste the dev settings to several files not all of them get the new settings. 
And here is another issue in the LR: I cannot reset all files by selecting them and clicking 'Reset' button. I have to reset each file one after another... That can be painful if there are ~300 files to reset.
Lightroom Classic gets worse and worse and I think the aim here is to force the users to use the cloud version sooner or later.

Just to be clear. A group of files can be reset in the Library module, but not in the Develop module.
