We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
In the newest version, in the Sync settings, you can not change the process version and have it sync with the other settings. The option is unavailable. See the attached screen grab.

"The Process Version option will be auto-selected if a related setting is selected."
These words in the Update notes suggest to me that if there is nothing in the Settings influenced by the Process Version, then there is no reason the check the Process Version box. (It is irrelevent for the Preset, or Sync action, being created). Ot maybe some Settings depend on the current Process Version and will not work if the PV is changed.
Laura Shoe puts a different spin on the wording-
"Process Version will be automatically selected when Basic tone controls and/or Treatment & Profile are checked (and it can not be deselected). This change also is present in the Sync and Copy/Paste dialogs."
Ok, but I tried to change the process version to a different version. I like to use version 2 for the Fill Light for some of the real estate work I shoot, and while it IS "Auto-Selected", the process version didn't sync. The first image (where I set my defaults) changed, and then the rest went back to Process Version 5. Does THAT make any sense?
Does THAT make any sense? No, and I see the same- Using Copy and Paste: the Process Version 2 does not 'Copy' to multiple selected images in the filmstrip. But by using the [Sync...] button it does!
I doubt Adobe would see this as a 'Bug'. There would be few LrC users that want to go back to old Process Versions.
What does make sense to me would be to use PV 5 exclusively, and know that the Shadows slider does the same as the Fill slider in PV2. Use PV5 only, and you have no worries about the PV with C&P or Sync of Develop adjustments 🙂
I can't get it to go to all of the photos, even using the sync button... and trust me when I say that the Shadows slider DOES NOT do what the Fill Light slider did. The ease of the Fill Light and Recovery sliders make it so much faster to do my work. I do Real Estate, sometimes 3 homes a day, which all need to be processed that night, often 30-50 shots per home. Fill Light and Recovery are CRUCIAL. This isn't just my opinion.
Watched the video- interesting! A 'new' idea for me from 2015!
I note the words in the article- "do extreme shadow recovery as a last resort:"
I also have done RealEstate photography, but never needed "a last resort".
I revisited the Develop module and retried applying PV2 to selected images only this time with a Preset that includes just the 'Fill Light', and AutoSync- Applying the Preset applied Fill and PV2 to all the selected images on the filmstrip.
Try AutoSync instead of Copy&Paste- see if you have better results after Adobe's changes to the dialog.
