Adjustment brush: "Erase" turns to "Add", making it impossible to erase brush

I'm trying to erase some adjustments from an adjustment brush that I've applied. I click Erase as usual, but as soon as I click the image with the eraser to erase the area, the selection option becomes "Add" again, and start painting brush instead of erasing it.

 

Additionally, when I try to add/remove brush from a gradient adjustment, nothing happens when I click Brush.

 

I've just realized that this happening today, and wasn't an issue before.

Try resetting the preferences in Camera Raw. See this video link on how to do that:

Re: Adjustment brush: "Erase" turns to "Add", making it impossible to erase brus

Are there any updates on this? None of the adjustments to brushes/gradients are working in Camera Raw in latest version (even after resetting prefs). Only after playing in Camera Raw for 5 minutes, one can easily see:

 

  1. Brushes to linear gradient adjustments not working.
  2. Brushes to radial gradient adjustments not working.
  3. It's impossible to toggle radial gradient adjustments' "inside/outside" option and it's stuck at "outside" only.

 

I think Adobe is being extremely irresponsible here for not even providing a feedback to their paying customers. It is literally destroying my photography flow, and it was working perfectly in the previous versions of Camera Raw.
