Hello,

Is there a way to set up Lightroom so that each time I open a new filter (radial, graduated or paintbrush) all sliders values are set to 0 ?
I.e. skipping the double click on "Effect" each time I open a new filter.

Thanks !

Select a filter, but do not apply it yet. Set all sliders to zero. This will now be the default, if you work as follows: Each time you add a new filter, apply it first and then set the sliders.

Thanks for your reply.
My process is that most of the time I like to set the sliders before applying them so that I can directly assess their impact and evaluate the selected area.
I wish that each time I create a new one, all sliders get back to 0 regardless of the previous values.

Lightroom Classic does not have that option. Lightroom desktop does, so maybe this will change in the future. For now, you have two choices. Either apply the filter first and then change the sliders. Or change the sliders first and accept that you will have to reset the old settings each time you apply a new filter. You can save an “All zero” local adjustment preset to speed that up.

I'll keep on resetting the sliders beforehand, it's just one double-click after all.
