Problem with ACR Adjustment Brush & Gradient Tool

I have the latest version of CC.

I downloaded Olympus RAW files (ORF) yesterday and worked on some photos in ACR.  Today I went back to some of them to modify some local adjustments.  For some reason the pins are white and there is no way to click on them so I can make modifications.  I can't even delete them without removing all my adjustments.  When I try to click on them I get a new pin, which of course can't be modified either.  I haven't used PS in a couple of weeks but this has never happened before.

I hope someone can show me how to fix this.

This is an issue that drives me nuts also. I complained about not being able to click on the pins, they made the pins bigger, but the clickable area is still so small. You have to hover over the pin until you see the mask appear for the area that you edited. Wish I could tell you something easier.

Thxs.  At least I know it's not just me.  What I found is that I have to hover slightly away from the pin itself to get the mask and then click to get the pin.  I was trying to click directly on the pin.  I can't understand why Adobe created this complication which slows down post processing and why they don't fix it.

I've generally found that the sweet spot is in the top left edge of the pin about 45 deg.
