NX 1.3: Opening picture control turns off control points?!?

Discussion in 'Nikon Capture and View NX' started by hotrod4x5, Aug 5, 2009.

  1. I am working on a photo, I have done some adjustments to the picture control, like changing from neutral to standard, changing the saturation, etc. Then I placed some control points.

    Then I decide to go back and tweak the picture control, maybe changing the saturation a bit or trying Vivid or one of the D2X modes.

    When I reopen picture control to do that, the control points are unchecked automatically. I can recheck them, and while it is only one click, I can't help but wonder, WTH Nikon is thinking? Why would I NOT want to see my control points when I am going to change some other setting?

    Anyway to change this so that all adjustments stay checked?

    in CNX2 (1.3 probably the same but i forget):

    Keep all Edit Steps Active
  3. Upgrade to V2 :wink: IIRC this option was added in General Preferences: "Keep All Steps Active in Edit List (Requires Fast Processor)".

    C'mon, Rodney, Nikon needs another small chunk of your wallet :biggrin:

    Seriously, V2 has a ton of good stuff for you.
  4. Thanks, I am not seeing it as an option in the preferences in my version. Oh well.

    I did the trial of 2.xx and while it has some nice features, I currently am happy with 1.3 for the most part. When I get some extra dough, I will upgrade.
  5. It's nice to see that at least one person does not feel compelled to always succumb to using the latest and greatest. :biggrin:
  6. Geez, Mike, keep this up and we will have to drum you right out of the "Help the Other Guy Out (of money of course :wink:)  League" :biggrin::biggrin:
  7. Rod is one of the good guys, Bill. We'll let him keep his money. We'll work on somebody else instead. :biggrin:
