Two things have long irriated me about the History stack in Lightroom.
1) Publish events
I often republish photos over and over again (for various reasons) and I find it really irritating that these are recorded in History. After all, if I step back to before a publish event in the stack, it doesn't UN-publish the image! 🙂
I would like to have the ability to tell LR never to record Publish events, with the option to also purge all Publish events from all images in my catalog.
2) Closely related sequential edits
I hate the way that LR adds a separate step to History with every single edjustment I make to e.g. with the Crop & Straighten tool. I often make a series of small adjustments to the crop and angle and can easily end up with 8-10 separate sequential entries in the stack. It is always (mathematically) possible to reduce these steps to one crop and one angle edit (possibly only one, depending on what maths LR uses behind the scenes).
I would like the option to tell LR "always compress immediately sequential edits into a single composite edit"- and also the option to tell it to clean up all the edits in my catalog.
With these two new features, the History stack would (for me) become far far more meaningful and useful.
