I have the same problem. An important element of my workflow is the "Auto" correct. However, I'm afraid the checkbox "Auto Tone and Color Adjustment" in the settings and the actual "Auto" button in the control panel (image already open) do not yield the same results. I also figured out the "Auto tone and color correction" checkbox pretty quickly BUT it does not apply the same auto correction as the one in ACR's panel when the image(s) is already open. I checked the settings box, opened 15 images, and yes they opened already auto corrected but then if you click on "Auto" again, the settings change a bit, usually for the better. Is the settings checkbox Auto Correct an older algorithm maybe? But for sure it's not exactly the same correction as the actual "Auto" button in the control panel on the right hand side. I don't understand why this was changed. I've been using ACR for about 8 to 10 years and, at least for the last few years, I was able to select all images and apply "Auto" for all of them with 1 click. And they did have individualized settings, whatever fit the specific image best. It wasn't a one-adjustment-fits-all. Is there a chance this feature will be restored for 11.4?
