Hi all.
Let's say that I select three pictures, I press N to see all three pictures together.
I enable the auto-sync button and then I adjust lets say exposure. The idea is to modify exposure in 3 images at the same that were shot with the same settings . I have noticed that it takes way too much time for the lightroom to show me the changes in the remaining ones. It always shows me the change I have applied in the major photo I have selected.

Can it be that lightroom over the years slows down considerably? I have noticed that this delay affects my workflow.
There is a bug where Lightroom does not always update previews. This could also be caused by it. Wait for the next update and then see if that solved it.
MY work around. I click twice the +1Exposure, then +1 again. The image then gets super overexposed but it shows the change :)
