Turn off sync on iPad for some photos

I could have written this dozens of times in the past years...  I am having a major issue with the LightroomCC syncing process to where it is determinantal to my OS hard drive and user needs. 

 

I solely use Lightroom Classic on my Macbook Pro for my workflow. However, I also own an iPad and occasionally prefer to edit a few photos there.. OR... I have uploaded a few photos to my iPad first, edited them there, and then want to transfer edit info over to the original file within Lighroom Classic Catalog.

 

Whenever i need to edit a photo on iPad.... I do my syncing process in classic via syncing a collection folder within Lightroom Classic...  So whats the PROBLEM? 

 

I CAN'T SYNC A FOLDER WITHOUT IT SYNCING EVERY SINGLE PHOTO WITHIN THE LIGRTROOM CC CATALOG ON MY IPAD!

I needed to edit 1 photo on the iPad.. Created a collection with 1 photo.. synced it... and then CC proceeded to sync 700+ photos From my iPad LightroomCC "All Photos" collection.

 

My MBP harddrive is about maxed out on capacity at the moment... And I DONT WANT ALL THOSE PHOTOS SYNCED... 

 

I really want to see an option to prevent this from happening... Like a setting for only albums and collection folders that are allowed to be synced.  

 

I never use Lighroom CC on my desktop or laptop.. In fact I strongly dislike CC in many ways.   I ONLY USE CLASSIC.. the only time I ever use CC is on the iPad because it's the only option.. but the problem with CC is that it syncs everything from the iPad CC app... and does not have an option to turn it off...  WE NEED THE OPTION TO TURN IT OFF.

 

I do not need 700+ photos to sync to my Laptop harddrive every time i need to edit 1 photo.  My harddrive is maxxed out already. 

 

A desperate please and thank you!!!
