I created some presets on my iPad and iPhone and they synced with each other, and I thought that they'd also sync with Classic, but haven't. What do I need to know about either how to sync dev presets, or exporting from CC and importing into Classic.

Thanks,

Reid

Presets are one of the things that do not sync between Cloud and LrClassic. And I don't know that it's possible to export a preset from any of the Cloud apps, including the Lightroom desktop app.
In that case, you could perhaps take an unedited test raw image into Lr Desktop, apply one of the presets that you created, wait for the changes to sync down to Classic and then use that image in Classic to create a preset from it. Then reset the image and repeat the process until you've recreated all the required presets in Classic.

Set dovetailing on my previous thread about traveling with an iPad, sounds like it makes sense to create development presets in Lightroom classic, export them, then import them into Lightroom cc, then they will sync to my devices, especially if I want to include auto tone
