Lighting build suddenly doesn't need applying?
I'm happily testing the lighting on my scene and and suddenly it doesn't seem to need to apply the lightmaps anymore.
I watch it state 'Lighting build complete' after encoding the textures, but then nothing.
It's not normal to not have to apply them right? Up until now I've always had to apply them after the build was complete. The lightmaps seem alright but I'm not sure, as I don't know what's wrong with it. Is it possible that it's applying the lightmaps itself? I've never had that before and it doesn't sound right.

The lighting build has always applied itself after it completes, unless you are in the middle of adjusting, in PIE/Simulate mode, etc in which case you will see a box pop up in the bottom right asking for you to confirm applying the light build.
If you prefer to always have this option to apply it yourself after the build has finished you can go to Window > Editor Preferences > Level Editor > Miscellaneous and disable the option for Apply Lighting Automatically.
I hope this helps.
