Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us!

 

Is it not possible to map custom shortcuts for the quick develop Settings in the Library Module as of now in Lightroom Classic.

 

It seems like a great idea, could you share this as a feature request here?

This forum is monitored by our developers and they might look into it for future updates.

 

Regards,

Akash

The MIDI2LR plugin lets you adjust Quick Develop settings from your MIDI device:

There are lots of tutorial pages and videos for MIDI2LR.

Yes, i'm working with midi2lr, but there are not all quick develop settings. The quick develop settigs which i need are exposure, temperature, shadows and highlights.

I see that MIDI2LR doesn't allow you to control the <<, <, >, and >> buttons for the White Balance and Tone Control sections of the Quick Develop panel. I think this is because Adobe didn't properly document that part of the LR SDK API (which plugins use to access LR).  The MIDI2LR developer, Rory Jaffe, had filed bug reports about this many months ago, but Adobe hasn't responded constructively.

 

Just now, I reverse-engineered the proper documentation and updated the bug report filed by Jaffe, explaining how MIDI2LR can easily manipulate all the settings in the Quick Develop panel:

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/add-to-api-lrdevelopcontroller-quickdevelopad...

 

I don't know how often Jaffe checks in at these forums, so you might submit a request that he now implement those settings in MIDI2LR.

I think your best best is to contact the MIDI2LR developer and ask him to implement Quick Develop adjustments. You've already found the thread in the official feedback forum where he posted about LR not providing the right functionality to plugins. I followed up on that post, reverse engineering the undocumented behavior of the LR API; with that information, it should be straightforward for MIDI2LR to support all Quick Develop ajdustments.
