Can you in lightroom, target only midtones and add say more magenta?

It seems like there is a set of sliders missing from the HSL tab
HSL tab gives you
Hue vs Hue
Hue vs Sat
Hue vs Lum

I'd like to see
Lum vs Sat
Lum vs Hue
Sat vs Lum

Also Is there I way to see saturation clipping without having to hover my mouse to read the 8-bit RGB values?

as far as seeing luminance clipping, turn on your clipping in the histogram, goto the develop module and goto the HSL/Color/B&W block and select the luminance, hold down the option key if your on mac, or I believe its the alt key on pc then adjust the proper slider.

Oh nevermind, i thought said luminance. It's 4 a.m. and I just got off of work, thats my story amd i am sticking to it :).

Good night!!

haha no problem.
I have a feeling to find saturation clipping ill have to keep using the method of hovering the mouse and reading the values manually. I'm happy at least that feature is there.

you can target any color with saturation and luminance. I read somewhere that it is better to adjust color clipping with luminance. Just go into the develop module and select the HSL/Color/B&W block, click on that little adjustment button in the upper left, place that over the color you want to adjust and move up or down while holding down the mouse button, or manually do it with the sliders. and you can do the same in luminance section. I'm sure Greg can help you more though.

Yeah those sliders are powerful but what those sliders do are target a hue and adjust either luma, sat or hue. I want to target luma values (ex. shadows) and adjust it's sat or hue, much like how a 3way colour correctors work in Sg or the colour balance layer in PS
