Hello, i can't seem to make the new masking tool to work correct.

When i make an adjusment, by brush, auto select or any other tool the mask shows up in my image, red by default, and when i make a change in the Basic-panel, the adjustments will be applied over the whole image and not just the masked part.
Is this a bug or am i doing something nog correct?
Help please... 🙂

Two possibilities I can think of:

 

1. You've inadvertently collapsed the local adjustment sliders and are using the Basic panel sliders

or

2. You are scrolling too far and using the Basic panel sliders by mistake

Perhaps this is because I am using multiple masks? I don't see any clear direction on this on the support page. I am simply trying to create one mask for the sky, and one mask for the rest of the image. I've tried deselecting masks and hiding them, but when I make adjustents in the MASK panel, the entire image is affected.

I've read the entire thread, this issue doesn not appear to be addressed. Let me reiterate - I am NOT using the basic adjustments panel.

YOU MAY HAVE ACCIDENTALLY CLOSED THE SELECTION PANEL. SEE THE ARROW ON THE
SAME LINE AS EFFECT AND CUSTOM BUT ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT. CLICK THE
ARROW AND THE PANEL APPEARS.
THAT WAS MY PROBLEM.

I don't see the arrow you speak of. I see the panel. Could you point it out to me in this image? LR Mask trouble.jpg

CLICK ON THE *SELECT SUBJECT.* IT SHOULD SELECT AND SHOW UP WITH THE *RED
COLOR OVER THE SUBJECT*. IF YOU SEE A BOX THAT SAYS* AMOUNT(SLIDER)*THERE
SHOULD BE A TRIANGLE RIGHT ABOVE *0.00.* THE RT UPPER CORNER SHOULD HAVE A
LITTLE TRIANGLE. CLICK IT AND THE FULL LIST OF SLIDERS SHOULD APPEAR IN A
LARGER DROP-DOWN BOX. . IF THAT DOES NOT WORK, I AM NOT SURE WHAT YOUR
PROBLEM IS.
SORRY,

@Bobby Stevens  If you are updated to v11.4 then creating an inverse mask is easy.

So this menu item gives you the two masks-

I think @A J24824100p4qh is talking about the Disclosure triangles which you will only see in the Brush Tool adjustment panel (Not in Sky or Subject).

And @A J24824100p4qh Please don't type in all capitals- It is the equivalent of shouting in the forums.

Sorry for the CAPs. If you select sky or subject the drop down slider
groups show up but if you hit the triangle, in the rt upper drop down box,
the sliders go away and the Amount slider shows up. When I had the
problem, I had somehow hit the triangle and the amount slider was there. I
just was not aware that that would happen.
Once I corrected that mistake, all the sliders worked as they were designed
to do.
