I've installed new Lightroom version 11.0.

 

When I draw a radial gradiant, the red overlay is now on the inside of the gradient every single time. In previous versions of Lightroom, by default the changes made to the radial gradient were on the outside, or at least, Lightroom would remember the last radial gradient you drew and the next one you would draw would be either inverted or not depending on the previous one you drew. Lightroom no longer remembers the last gradient you drew. I mostly make changes to the outside of the radial gradient, so now every time I draw one I have to invert it. Or is there a way to make it behave like it did before?

 

Another irritation is the red tool overlays are now always on when you draw them. In previous versions, the tools would remember if you had the overlay turned on the last time you used it. Or you could hover your mouse over the pin to display the overlay. Is there a way to make this behave like it did in the past so that it doesn't automatically show the red overlay every single time? When it displays the overlay I can't see the changes the brush or gradient is applying. I'd rather see my settings being applied so I can tell if it's the desired effect I want. 

 

I know there are keyboard shortcuts to quickly toggle these things but now I have to do it on hundreds of images over and over. Before I didn't. So this is adding thousads of keystrokes to my workflow.

With the mask tool open, uncheck the menu item Tools > Automatically Toggle Overlay.

I don't think so, unfortunately.

Now I have a headache. It was good and simple, now it is difficult and unnecessary. There is Photoshop for this kind of complex processing, right?

I was replying to this post and my clip didnt get uploaded.  It is not difficult and unnecessary and is better and still simple.

100% agree about the Invert check box with radial gradients.  I finally found the "Reset Sliders Automatically" box and unchecked that so at least I can now do the same sort of edit to successive pictures but it is annoying that I have to click a box to invert the radial gradient every single picture.  I wish that was tied to the "Reset Sliders" check box and thus stayed the way it was last set.

Hopefully this will come in a bug fix!  Seems simple.
