Re: Great info on undocumented stuff

A quick note on importing edits: none of Darktable's sliders do the exact same thing as Lightroom's. Thus even if you could import, say, exposure and saturation and contrast, the result would not be the same.

Strangely, however, a very few editing settings are imported, such as the input color space. I wish it wouldn't import any editing commands at all from Lightroom. It's just not useful in any way.

Regarding your comment about not being able to clear the history, I have a feeling you might be confusing imported editing settings with the default settings Darktable applies to every newly imported picture. There are a number of "edits" that Darktable applies to every picture just in order to be able to view and edit it at all. In fact all raw developers do, but usually hide it from the user. You will never have an empty history in Darktable, or an empty active module list.
