I use masks to blur parts of my images, and in 99% of cases I use them inverted. Older version memorized this and the new version does not memorise the fact I used inverted mask just seconds ago, so for every new mask I have to additionally click on invert checkbox, which together with the fact I have to use masks now and create new ones with additional clicks, slows down my workflow. 

Please include Invert option to be remembered by Lightroom mask from the previous usage of the mask.

Bottom of mask adjustments panel, a option to automatically reset sliders.

Thanks, but i know this option. I do not want to automatically reset them so I keep this box unchecked to remember my settings and Lightroom does not remember I used inverted mask. It used to remember that along with other adjustments.

This is a very imporant update.  We need to be able to remember the last invert state of the radial gradient.  Just have an option check box for this.  Because I almost always use the radial gradient outside, not inside the circle.  So I always have to make a gradient and then invert it.  If I could tell the system to remember the state of the invert option, I could skip an entire key stroke every time.  That is a huge time saver.

Agreed, this is a huge issue that has added a lot of unecessary bloat to my workflow.  If the sliders are set to remember previous state, that should reflect the invert state.

I guess if you plan to repeat a certain kind of local adjustment onto a large batch of images, the efficient workaround is to set AutoSync and highlight all these images. Then add whatever suitable global adjustment, and perhaps multiple and complex local adjustment too (inverted, AI detected, intersected....) onto the active image.

 

By batch-adding masks onto all those images, as inverted or combined etc, in one go: you have sidestepped the need to repeat all those steps from scratch image by image. What does remain is to then - as needed - go back and individualise the location, size, rotation of that already-present radial mask or gradient mask within each image / re-generate (Update) its AI selection of Sky or Subject / apply whatever further brushed masking overrides etc this image uniquely calls for.

 

Alternatively a named mask can be made on the active image, with the desired adjustments and inversion and such, and then - by name - chosen to be Synced into other images after the fact. This can then be moved around as needed within each of those other images; but again, the initial work of making that mask with the desired slider settings and inversion etc, will have already been done for you.
