    A Nagging Nik (Viveza) Question

    When I open Nik Viveza 2 I see the sliders for "Global" adjustment in the right panel. After I finish with these I select one or more "Control Points" and the right panel changes to "Selective" adjustments, as expected. After completing these selective adjustments how do I return to Global adjustments if I need to?

    The answer is probably right in front of me but I cannot see it. Help!

    Here's the answer:
    Just L-Click on the image (not on a Control Point) and you'll be returned to the Global panel.

    (Amazing how just asking the question often leads to the answer)

    Click in an area without control points. Either in the image or on the border.

    Edit: I was too slow on the draw.

    It is also amazing how reading the queries and answers on various CiC posts will provide answers to some questions that I have not yet asked....

    True most of the questions get answered by reading topics here but I really can't understand why Nik could not provide for a simpler solution in the first place.

    Note to the unwary - I think this only works if you have the select tool (the pointer) selected, and not the pan (hand) tool

    I had problems with the control points previously because I was in the minus rather than the pointer tool mode. Someone on CiC graciously corrected me in this matter.

    NIK is pretty easy to use but, occasionally we have to delve into it.

    I learn a lot from YouTube videos on NIK.

    BTW: Here's a pretty simple, but good tutorial on using NIK Dfine 2 and taking it out of the automatic mode and using it in manual combined with using negative control points...
