I encountered a bug in the Lightroom 5.2 spot removal tool. When the tool is active (after hitting Q), perform a left-click with the mouse and hold it. Then move a little so it starts painting a white surface. Still keep the mouse button pressed and hit the Delete key to remove the spot being created. Instead of deleting only this spot, ALL spots disappear.
After this toggling spot removal mode does not work anymore.
Restart of Lightroom is required. I use Windows 8 Pro.

This should be fixed in Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6.

Hi Roelof,

Thanks for the report! I was able to reproduce this using your steps you've listed on Win8, but not in MacOS 10.8.5.

For me, I notice that once you've hit delete and see the spots disappear, clicking on the Crop tool, then clicking back to the Spot removal tool, then clicking on the image brings the spots back (while creating a new one) without the need for a restart of LR.

Is that the same in your case?

Thanks
Pete
