Since updating to the new Lightroom I have not been able to do anything but the basic edits. When I click on the icon for masking nothing happens. I have a mac OS Monterey 12.6.1. Please help!

LATEST

The masking tools have by default moved out into a separate panel. A number of users have reported this panel going "missing" - moved outside the monitor's extent or simply not displaying, who knows. This may correlate with running LrC full-screen.

 

Some people report that this masking panel may come back (at least for a while) after closing and reopening LrC - and may also be better behaved if the app is not run full screen.

 

There is another way to show this masking panel, once you can regain sight of it - and that is, dragging to "dock" it within the right hand stack of tool panels - just under the histogram. It does seem to work reliably there.
