With a Fuji XT3, I shoot in RAW with the film simulation Across R. I do this to see what the live view looks like in B&W. When I bring the images into Lightroom, I would expect the RAW images to be in color, but they are all in B&W. Is this the normal flow of importing? Thanks...

What have you got set as the Raw Defaults (Preferences>Presets tab)? It sounds as though you've got "Camera Settings" in play somewhere in that panel (Camera Settings will try to read what "picture style" was set in camera, and if there's a corresponding camera-matching profile it will be applied during the raw conversion). So yes, it is now possible that raw files could appear as B&W on import.

I just changed that setting, so I will see what happens next time. Thanks Jim...
