Lightroom will not update local adjustments when a preset with no local adjustments is chosen

This bug started happening to me probably after the latest 9.2 update.

 

1) Prepare a flat preset, with all edits set to their neutral position, and no local adjustments.

Let's call this preset "Rawest". Make sure everything is selected when you save it, especially the "Graduated Filters" and "Radial Filters" options. Now, this preset is supposed to restore everything to flat and remove any local adjustment, when selected.

2) Pick a photo, and select the Rawest preset. As you can see, no local adjustments are present and everything is flat.

3) Edit the photo and add some local adjustments. Here I added 2 radial filters, one on the top-left corner, and one on the face of the horse.

4) Now select the "Rawest" preset that you created in the beginning.

5) Look at the local adjustments: they have not been removed. Parameters in various panels have returned to their neutral position as expected, but every local adjustment is still there. This was not happening in previous versions of Lightroom.

In general, a preset only changes those settings that were stored in the preset. Presets aren't capable of storing adjustments made with the Adjustment Brush, so there's no way for a preset to clear such adjustments from a photo.

You are right, Brush adjustments cannot be saved, but Radial and Gradient filters can be saved, as you can see by the screenshot below. If you look at my example above, you can see that after selecting my "Rawest" preset, the horse still has 2 Radial Filters. Those are not Brushes. That is a bug.

My bad, I assumed it was the brush by looking at the photo, missing the word "radial".

 

I agree that it's a bug. I suggest you post a bug report in the official Adobe feedback forum, where Adobe wants all bug reports and feature suggestions: 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/categories/photoshop_family_photoshop_lightroom 

 

Be sure to include the first ten lines of the menu command Help > System Info.  Provide all the details, rather than linking back to this thread -- experience shows that Adobe developers tend not to follow the links.

Or, you could use the Lightroom General preset called Zeroed, will set all sliders to 0, including sharpening, will no, if I remember right, reset the profile.

 

and, ahh, a link:

https://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2016/07/resetting-files-in-lightroom.html

 

being a FujiX shooter, I zero at import, avoiding thee lousy Adobe default sharpening.

 

ahh, but zeroed might not flush out your adjustment brush(s). I really should answer these at a PC not on by rear end via iPad.
