The tone curve is also in Lightroom in the develop module.

Correct!

I was just remarking on how brain-dead LR's tone curve UI is compared to how thoughtfully implemented ACR's is.

ACR's tone curve is a precision instrument.

LR's tone curve is a pretty toy.

And what's sad, is that both UIs control the same underlying code.

Brain dead how? Just what's specifically missing in LR's Tone Curve that you feel makes it a 'toy'?

Again, it's the UI, not the underlying code that I'm complaining about.  Quoting from my previous post:

The only thing I've noticed, which has more to do with the front-end UI code:

    ACR's UI for point curve manipulation is dramatically better than Lightroom Classic's:
    • in ACR, clicking a point doesn't accidentally move the point
    • in ACR, you can select a point by clicking it, and it remains selected
    • in ACR, selected points can be manipulated with the keyboard
    • in ACR, you can use Control-Tab to move between selected points
    • in ACR, once a point is selected you can edit it numerically by entering specific In/Out values

    Additionally, the tone curve in LR doesn't even use the full width/height of the panel, which makes it terribly small on large displays!

It works a bit different and less refined than in photoshop.
You cannot use the arrows to move points.
To remove a point it is different as well - in photoshop you just drag the point out in LR it is right click- remove.
I prefer the photoshop curves. It is my nr1 tool.
It is better to have the same tools in both programs.

Just be a bit patient, this will mostly be a rant of the past.....  ;)
