Where Can I View My Develop Defaults?

Some time ago I set my default settings (sharpening, noise reduction, etc.) specific to each camera ISO.

Can I view the defaults I set as a list? Perhaps within lightroom, or by opening a file somewhere in my lightroom directory?

I'm sure I could just go to photos at each ISO and look at the develop settings individually, but one would think the defaults were saved somewhere.

Thanks.

I don't think you can get a list of your defaults in LR. But you can have a look at the defaults in the following directory in Win7:
C:\Users\[your-user]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Defaults

The files in there are in XML format and - with some imagination - can be read by humans.

It helps if you can find an XML editor/viewer. What you see in Notepad looks pretty awful. :(

I use the editor that comes with Microsoft's free Visual Studio Express, but there must be lots available.

Beat,

Nice one. Much nicer UI and more lightweight!

"pretty awful"... Isn't that an oxymoron (or whatever it's called) :)

This is what I call "pretty awful":
