this is very important to me and i can't figure out how to do it. in the view with two images when editing, the left one is the original state.
lets say i did a wb and an exposure adjustment. now i want to sharpen. i need to see a before and after of just the sharpening effect. with the before and after images having the same wb and exposure.
or can i click somewhere to toggle before and after.
i know i can press the undo arrow but then i have to enter all the sharpening settings again.
im betting there is a way to do this.
You don't say what editor you're using. In DPP 4 you can reset the "before" by doing a file save, because what it shows you in the preview is the last saved state vs the current state.

If you select the "Save" option you save all the edits you have made to your RAw file inside the file, so that the next time you open the file you are where you left it.
If you select "Save As' then you get to save the RAW file with a new name - you could append WB to the file name and save just the WB adjustment.
You can use the Pin/Compare window (the one with 1/2 in it at bottom of display)
Load in the RAW you saved with an edit as well as the original RAW (you will have to undo the edits to the original RAW).
Then you can edit the original with a new tool. Repeat. as often as you need.

no good. i just tried it.
when i press the save button on top it brings up a dialog box with options to save as jpeg or tiff. not raw.
You're looking at the wrong "save" button. It's the "Save" option in the "File" menu. Yes, it's confusing; and yes, it should be changed; but you'll have to beat up on Canon about that. I've tried several times to no avail.
