Adjustment brush not working

Hi

I am experiencing very odd behaviour when using the adjustment brush.

I have used the brush to lighten text on a gravestone. This worked well but has stopped working for some reason.

Every time I try to make a new brush stroke, Lightroom resets all my previous edits back to Import.

This is very frustrating as I was just finished brightening the text.

I use a Wacom tablet and have disabled touch and side buttons but this has't helped.

Any suggestions other than restarting Lightroom and PC as that hasn't helped either.

Thanks in advance

Sorry to report that reverting to LrC version 10.0 hasn't helped.

Exactly the same behaviour from Lightroom.

I have tried creating virtual copies to reduce the number of the history states/records but this hasn't helped either.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Bob for your suggestion.

I believe that it has something to do with the number of brush strokes.

I used one of the virtual copies that I had made earlier and deleted the adjustment brush with all the brush strokes. I then created a new adjustment brush to finish adjusting the last few letters on the gravestone. I could complete the adjustments without any problem. My plan is to open both versions of the image as layers in Photoshop and then blend the two adjustments.

A bit of a work-around but hopefully it will work as planned.

I will also look at the other suggestions tomorrow.

Again, many thanks for your time and assistance.

Cheers

Thank you for your suggestion, Denis.

I may have run into several issues, which I will look into tomorrow.

I recently activated GPU acceleration and maybe this has played a role in the isuue.

I also updated LrC yesterday, but reverting to LrC 10.0 hasn't solved the issue.

I suspect that the issue was caused by the number of brush strokes.

You can read my reply to Bob in the thread below.

Again many thanks for your time and suggestion.

Cheers

James
