I have a User Develop Preset (its main effect being Auto-Tone) that I right clicked and selected "Apply on Import".

In the import settings panel, however under "Develop Settings" I've selected none, as I assumed that "the Apply on Import " setting would cover that.

It does appear to do apply my user presetso, and yet in History, there is no step shown for "my Auto Preset ", so if I do not like what Auto-tone has done I cannot remove it in the History panel. It appears that the reset button at the foot of the Develop panel does in fact allow you to revert to the as shot settings.

Am I right in this?
