How to keep masking settings in new LR

I have two issues that I'm hoping there's some way to resolve:

 

1. Radial filters previously were automatically applied to what was OUTSIDE the filter. I had to check off "invert" to apply it to what was inside it. Now it's the opposite. But I cannot find a way to keep it so that every time I pull up the radial filter, it's already inverted. IS there a way to do this? In the old version of LR, if I made the change before applying a filter, it stayed that way every time. 

 

2. Along the same line...things like the radial filter, brushes, etc. automatically pulled up my latest selection. So if I used "burn" for a brush, when I pulled up the radial filter, it would come up with burn first. Now when I do that, the next comes up saying "Burn (edited)" but everything now says 0. Is there some way to make this "stick" like it used to? I often use a radial filter on each image in a group and it's becoming a huge pain to always have to select the type AND invert it.

 

I am on a Windows machine if that helps at all.

Ugh sorry folks. I thought I clicked on LR Classic and now I see I clicked on CC. I don't know how to move the post and it won't let me delete it!

Radial filters previously were automatically applied to what was OUTSIDE the filter.

I disagree, mine have always been inside. Did you perhaps preload your Radial filter to invert? Not sure if you can preload in the new masks, what you used to be able to do was select the brush, and before clicking on the image, adjust sliders, they would then stick. I see some posts on how to get the new mask to stick, so perhaps now an issue.

 

Ah #2 same issue. Have not tested yet, at bottom of brush panel, an option box on automatic reset, turn that off and see if that helps

 

One thing to remember, in the previous version, preloading was a way to stick slider settings, but, after you clicked on the photo, after you placed the pin, additional moves of sliders do not stick, just the preload mods stuck.

Re: #1. Mine definitely was outside the circle automatically. If anything was set up in preferences, I can't find out where. About 99% of the time I apply the filter to what is OUTSIDE the circle, so having to check off invert every single time is really irritating. 

 

And yes, I liked that it would at least come up with the original settings. So if I was using burn for a radial filter, even if I altered it after, for every photo after that, it would come up with the original burn settings and I wouldn't have to reselect it every time. It's just two extra mouse clicks for each photo (and with tendon issues, the less clicks the better!).

 

I will check and see if the reset all sliders changes anything!

Ok the reset sliders did indeed keep the sliders to whatever is originally selected!

 

Now if I can just find some way to make the radial filter come up inverted every time.

To your first point - it was recenttly confirmed by one of the engineering team that the radial filter is behaving as designed (i.e. inside by default).

 

To your second point - check that you don't have the new 'Reset sliders automatically' checked (see screenshot below for old behaviour).

 

BTW, the quick and easy way to invert a mask is to use the apostrophe key '

Ok I am NOT crazy. I'm looking at an old tutorial that was used in a class I took for using the radial filter.

The dark part that's being applied by the radial filter is OUTSIDE the circle and "invert" is not checked off.

 

On the new one that I'm using, in the radial filter, it's applying to INSIDE the circle and "invert" is not checked off.
