  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

I'm doing some reorganization outside of LR. I created a new test catalog and imported images with their associated XMP files already created. The new catalog recognizes the LR settings but there is no history. Just the following notation when I expand History. I can see the values set in the different options. When I press Reset, all the adjustments are removed.

I just want to check that this is expected behavior and that my assumption that adjustments are saved but the history bread trail is lost.

Thanks

Yes, that is expected behaviour. Edit History os one of the things that are not written to XMP (the others beings flags, Virtual Copies, Collection membership, stacks).
