My first things come to mind is. This could be “easy” to implement.
1 wb tool needs a automated WB correction.(the colorpicker is not always usable.)
2 keywords which are writeble in xmp.
3 a local adjustment color adjustment more then the one’s we have. HSL with colorpicker?
4 a layer visualisation of selective tone. I would like to see with “m” how much and where the sliders highlight, midtone, shadow and black are of influence.
I’d like to see a green/magenta axis slider for RGB white balance correction and I’d also like to be able to use the WB sliders in LA on RGB images. I know that WB adjustments on RGB files is not as effective as on RAW files, but right now I am scanning old film negatives and the color corrections available on my cheap scanner are very course and often need correction in PL.
I would be one of the strongest proponents of moving away from the current equaliser to such a palette but, seeing it in “reality” does cause me to wonder if it might be confusing if all the other palettes were to be visible at the same time (as in this screenshot)
What I wouldn’t want to lose is the present ability to be able to make global adjustments at the same time as local ones. But that would mean having apparent duplicates of global tools in the local palette.
Seeing it in the flesh, what does anyone else think?
I support this and want to add the possibility to enter specific values. I know exactly which values I want to have for example as micro contrast, fine contrast, shadows and so on. It’s difficult and unnecessary work to do that with the mouse pointer.

I think many of my wants have been mentioned already…
keywords in xml files
combining crop and horizon tool so we can eyeball a horizon… as well as keeping the facility to draw the line across.
I would add…
3. improving the filter functionality is really high priority for me. Specifically at the moment I’d like to filter so I only have the virtual copies. I can’t see a way of doing that other than assigning them a certain star value or picking them. Is there a better way that I am missing?
the ability to tag colours onto images - this adds so much flexibility for sorting images.
At the moment I am exporting to Affinity Photo to softproof and then print. It would be nice to be able to softproof in Photolab, but I suspect this is a big ask and I may be in the minority.
@zkarj there is a graduated filter in local adjustments - does that not work for you? That is what I use rather than control points.
Edit: I have just clicked your link @zkarj and I understand now - you wish to change the colour of the sky.
