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).
