    Different Alt-sliders between LR3 and LR4

    In LR3 I sometimes used the Alt-Exposure and Alt-Blacks to help me out to find good starting point for black and white points. Do they work exactly the same in LR4 ? What is the meaning of the Alt- with the other 3 controls (highlights, shadows and whites) ?

    Yes, the alt- will still show the clipping warnings. You'll probably find you don't need to tweak them as often in LR4 though.
