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.

"this still doesn't do anything to get rid of the  brush local adjustments."

 

You could use the free Fix Presets plugin to add dummy adjustment brush settings to the preset (hack upon hack).

All these hacks caused by the lack of a simple Adobe(Reset) button.  Now you can only reset back to import unless you go through a lot of gyrations.

The only workaround I can think of right now is to save a Snapshot as soon as the picture is imported. In this way, I can always go back to the original state.

A Snapshot after you first import won't work as it is the the same as if you used the Reset button.  Unfortunately the Reset button and and initial Snapshot include the edits you used in an import preset or Camera Default.  The only thing that worked was Reset(Adobe) which was removed as a feature in 9.?.

Lightroom 9.3 has resolved some of the things discussed in this thread by having a built-in preset called "Adobe Default" which does the same thing as the old Reset(Adobe).
