Problem:

When adding a mask with new mask tool, the 'Close' button are missing (see picture). To close the mask-tool it is necesary to click on another tool-icon to close the 'Mask' tool.

Have closed Lightroom several times and open again without succes.

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Focus on a picture
  2. Click new Mask-tool
  3.  Select as example brush mask
  4.  Mark the parts that need to be changed.
  5.  Check that the Close button are missing in the button (see picture)

No visible button to close mask tool is available

 

Suspected cause:
Sometimes it may seem as if if you switch to a new image without having closed the Mask tool, it is as if there is still a 'connection' to the image you first edited, even though you are now working on a new one.
Have at least noticed that it has previously seemed as if it solved the problem if you go back to the first thing you edited and closed Mask tool from there.
Right now I do not know what was the first image I applied it to and I can not find any method to get the "Close" button restored again.
It is very disturbing that you can only close/move on by clicking on other tool icons to close the mask tool.


Proposal for a solution:
When you click on a new image, the 'open' tool should automatically save and close what you have created.
