Not sure what you mean by clicking the active module summary.
Here is what I do with a sequence of bird shots, taken in rapid succession ie the bird doesnt have time to move much so history and masks should apply to the whole sequence quite effectively:
Open the first image in Darkroom and use various modules to get the best view of the bird. Often I will use a brush to outline the bird and create a mask, and then apply modules like local contrast and colorbalancergb to the masked area.
Now I can look at my left panel and see the mask manager where grp local contrast and brush 1 have appeared. Also, if I hover on the history tab over the entry for local contrast, it has “a mask was added” at the bottom of the list of changes
Click CTRL-C to copy the history
3.Click on the next image in the photo strip at the bottom of the screen
Click CTRL-V to paste the history onto the second image
Now we have the error - hovering over local contrast in the history tab shows “a mask was added” at the bottom of the list of changes, but the tab for created shapes is empty.
I tried this a few times to be sure, and then to avoid confusion I added turned on lens correction before copying - so that I could easily check that CTRL-V was working. It turned out that CTRL-V did not actually copy over the lens correction step!!
At this point I tried a CTRL-Shift-V selective paste, and that worked perfectly, pasting the masks and the extra lens correction step.
Given that CTRL-V works for you in the nightly build, I guess its something in my config. I have added the cytrinox rawspeed fork to get .CR3 support - maybe that’s causing it.
