Default Radial Filter State

I just updated to 11 and I have to say the new masking interface will take some getting used to.  One major issue for my workflow is regarding radial filters.  In the past, when I went to apply a new radial filter to a photo the preset I used when applying the last filter would be the starting point to this new filter as well.

 

That is still the case, except for one major thing.  The invert option is always unchecked for every new radial filter created.  

 

I use radial filters to apply vignette's to my images so obviously I need the invert box to be checked.  The new interface, with it unchecking every time, really slows this process down.

 

Is there a a way for radial filters to default to be inverted?

Do you preload your adjustment brushes?

I'm not sure what you mean.  I do have a preset "effect" that I select from the dropdown menu.

If you select an adjustment brush, and move sliders before clicking on the image, before placing a pin, the brush will be preloaded with this settings for the next time you use the brush.

 

However, I just tested, and the invert option button, does not get effected by this in my case.

 

I am not having your issue.

The current behavior regarding the persistence or remembering of the default state of the Radial Filter is as designed. It will always default to "Inside" for the effect.

I see.  It would be nice if it would default to the last used value as in previous versions rather than always to the "Inside."  But thank you for your response!

While appreciating that it doesn't fully address the issue described, you might find that tapping the apostrophe ( ’ ) key to toggle the Invert On/Off eases the pain a little.

Thank you!  That has been my workaround for the time being.  It helps.  🙂

Thanks for the response, but this is beyond frustrating. I use this constantly and it completely wrecks my workflow. The apostrophe workaround is fine for a day or two, but please add an option for invert to be checked each time we go to use the radial filter. I'm so frustrated right now.
