Lines appearing across image whilst dodge/burn in Lightroom Classic

I'm sitting editing on a PC, Win 10, all of my Adobe Apps are up to date.

 

Whilst trying to either dodge or burn instead of it just affecting the area I have selected with the cursor it is producing a line going to the border of the image, imagine having dodge/burn selected and dragging the cursor right across the image from where you have originally clicked, this is what is happening.

 

Any idea what is causing this?

Often, that term "up to date" turns out to be rubbish. Please please always state actual Adobe program name(s) and version. Words like updated, latest, up to date, are treated as BS by default, hence the request below. Just adding to the confusion is the use of the words Dodge and Burn, while the technique is used in LrC, their is no actual adjustment named Dodge and burn.

 

 

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

Not an actual name for an adjustment brush in LrC, perhaps conflating tool with intent.

 

Please post a screenshot of what you are referring to.

I was editing from an external hard drive, switched that and Lightroom/Photoshop off and let them cool down for an hour or two, switched back on and problem appears to be gone but it was as described in my original post. Using the adjustment brush tool in Lightroom Classic and whenever I clicked instead of it just affecting the area I was looking to work on a line would appear going from where I had clicked to the edge of the image as if I'd dragged the brush across the image.

@jamesc15687197  When Lightroom Classic starts doing strange things, the best bet is to reset the preferences. Here is a link to the official Adobe help site on how to do that.

Another thing you might try is to disable the GPU in LrC Preferences. Restart LrC and see if that helps.
