If a mask was started on an area that is now hidden by a crop, the mask marker is not visible anymore when entering mask mode (K).

Modifying a hidden mask means modifying the current crop to get access to the mask marker and setting the crop again after modification.

 

Masks markers out of crop should either:

- show on the outside edges of the picture area

- be allowed to be moved in the crop area if the mask is also active here

Just a thought, create a virtual copy, then move on to your additional tasks.

Yes indeed, creating a virtual copy and destroying the crop in the copy, editing the masks, before copying it the crop adjustement from the previous copy is also a possible workaround!

I use copy/paste adjustments regularly, however rarely for this. 
Depending on how I feel, I can also create another mask within the crop area and set new adjustments from it. 
That also works, unless the previous mask is very precise.

Actually, I don't even need to zoom out (or at least not further than fit).

If I press K, I can see my outside-of-crop mask markers on the edges (similar to my first request).

 

I just didn't see them before though I mostly catch up my markers in fit view.

I'll keep an eye on it for the next few days and then mark it as resolved if I find them reliably there.
