    I've a Luminar Neo installed on my PC. Today I'd try to install the Luminar Neo 1.0.5 Update, and I had a trouble. Message: "There isn't enough storage space available to install Luminar Neo". I've installed Luminar Neo in C/:Program files were there are 3,67 GB still free. 

    Which is the problem?

    Thank you

    Under what circumstances is the Undo-Redo supposed to work?

    I'm on MacOs. If I open the edits that I have already applied and tweak them or even a apply new edits, it does not enable do Undo-Redo to options.

    Undo and Redo should be possible with every action performed, though, it does not seem to be the case, as I'm yet to see an action that enables the Undo-Redo.

     

    -- UPDATE --

    The Undo-Redo works when you apply presets.. Though, That is kinda useless as all the presets already have an UNDO button next to them.

    Some feature requests:

    - Currently when you go to the Edits section and want to edit an already applied module, everything that was applied after that module gets disabled until you select the last edit applied. This is troublesome because one cares about the end result, meaning that when trying to correct something, a context is needed so to understand how that change affects the overall look.

    Otherwise, one may make changes to a previously applied edit, and then see a total different result once the last edit is again selected.

    I believe it would be handy to keep all the edits enabled by default, and rather have an option to isolate that single edit or to disable all the ones that come after that edit.


    - Another feature, a shortcut to switch between Paint and Eraser when masking.

     

    - Another feature, allow users to rename, or at least add custom name to applied edits. For example if I add a Color edit for the sky only, to distinguish it from the other Color edits, I could add Sky to its name, so it would become Color - Sky.

    Hi all

    Downloaded and installed Neo 1.0.5 yesterday without a problem. Looking good so far!

    I agree with the comment above, it would be helpful to be able to rename applied edits so that they can be easily reused.

    Also, I noticed that the percentage slider below a selected preset has been removed. I find it useful to apply 50% of a complete preset without having to tweak each of the tools individually.

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    Downloaded update.  After finishing, it will not launch on Windows 10 PC. Restarted computer and tried several times.  Shows the below screen for a while and then disappears. Uninstalled and downloaded latest version through my account.  Tried again several times but will not launch.  Tried running as admin - does not work either.  Any suggestions please?

    Cheers     Gary

    Gary Petts  My experience is that such issues are frequently caused by a corrupted catalog. To see if this may be your issue, try renaming your Neo catalog and then try to launch Neo.

    re 'I've installed Luminar Neo in C\:Program Files where there are 3,67 GB still free.'

    @Matias Lladó Cerdá - 3,67GB (3.67 in US) may seem like a lot of space but on a Windows PC that is like having your fuel tank on E for empty. I would suggest finding some ways to free up more space.

    I'm having a problem similar to Gary's.  I use Neo as a Photoshop plug-in and it take 30 - 60 seconds to start up each time I launch it.  The previous version only took 5 seconds or so.  I'm running Windows 11 and have never used the catalog feature. I've only used Neo as a PS or LR plug-in.

    re Neo 1.0.5 as PS plug-in load time on Windows 11: First photo took about 20 seconds on my laptop. The second photo took only about 7 seconds.
