OK, Stu, thanks. Didn´t start the tutorials before trying to launch the beta; didn´t think the anwer was in there. Seems I was wrong....
Use the "Store presets with catalog" option and all is fine. That's usually a necessary setting when you copy all this to another driver to take on location as an example. You want the presets to travel with the catalog.
Thanks a lot, Andrew! Had overlooked that option altogether; obviously that´s the solution. Assume the version in App Support is still the active one, and that the one saved with the catalog is just for backup/export, right?
Some more Lightroom Beta 2.0 videos here:
The one on local adjustments is really well done.
P.S. I have 1.4.1 and 2.0 Beta on the same Windows machine and use them both with no problem. I just can't run them both at the same time.
Thank you, Mike! I suppose the LR crew at Adobe realized that people would want to continue using 1.4 for production runs while testing the beta on their off time ("kicking the tyres..."), and that they did foresee this kind of potential problem.
Will try the beta as soon as I have time for it.... Those local adjustments might mean I won´t really need PS in the future.....
