    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    I was going to suggest that you file a bug report, but you already have (three years ago):

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    That smiley emoji should be a colon followed by a P. (I don't know how to tell the forum to not turn off emojis.)

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    When creating a template in the Metadata Wrangler Plugin, add the field "XMP:PreservedFileName" to the field list in "Finally, Forcefully Delete These Fields". (I haven't tested this, but I'm reasonably confident this is the magic spell.)

    Import How to change EXIF lens designation during inport.

    Unfortunately, LR doesn't let you change the lens information recorded in metadata (LR looks at both the industry standard EXIF fields and in MakerNotes). You could use the Lenstagger plugin after you import the photos if you really wanted to change the EXIF metadata. If you primarily use just...

    Catalog on NAS?

    Some people have used symbolic links to place the previews and smart-previews subfolders in different locations than inside the catalog folder, e.g. Is it possible to move the file location for Lightroom Previews?

    Catalog on NAS?

    I think the best you can do is to put the catalog folder on the virtual machine's drive and put the photos on the physical drive. But that's mildly inconvenient, since after exporting the catalog from your Mini, you'll have to separate the photos from the catalog.

    Move Collection Set

    Windows LR does show a slightly thicker grey line where you can drop the dragged collection set (where Mac LR uses a blue line): It's a bad UI graphic element.

    Develop module Accessing keywords while in DEVELOP

    The Any Tag plugin can add and remove keywords in Develop. I assign it Ctrl + T on my Mac, so it's very quick to invoke.

    Stitching panoramas in LR vs. PS?

    I too often observe significant differences between LR and PS, in how they handle different projections, in the quality of the seams, and in vignette handling. Usually LR gives very good results, and I only use PS when LR doesn't.

    Search for unpublished or modified images in a Publish Service?

    The Any Source plugin's Publish Collections command finds all published collections with photos needing to be published or republished. You can quickly examine those collections and photos and select some or all to batch-republish. You can run publish multiple collections concurrently, to better...

    “Fill edges” in Panorama

    When you initiate a batch merge, it uses the last settings you selected. So do a single merge with the Fill Edges option selected. Then a subsequent batch merge will use that option.

    Numbered folders in "Lightroom" Folder

    Those folders contain files that control diagnostic logging by the corresponding versions of LR. Typically they're of use only to Adobe engineers troubleshooting issues. You can safely delete the folders for versions earlier than the version you're currently running (9.3). But there's really...
