Hi there,

Sorry to hear about this, could you please try reinstalling Lightroom and see if that helps?

Regards,
Sahil

Check you brush settings. You maybe brushing with a density or flow close to zero. Another possibility is that your settings panel is collapsed, so you do not see the sliders, and that you have marked the option to reset the sliders when you start with a new mask. That would mean you are brushing with zero adjustments.

"When you scroll over the image" probably means you are brushing. You do have to brush something to get a brush mask...

you dont get what I mean,of course I have previously brushed the image to create a mask.I mean after brushing you chage adjustments and to apply them you need to pass the mouse over the image without clicking,it is the only way it works.

I'll have to check this later because I type this on my iPad, but I am pretty sure that I won't be able to reproduce that. It's not how it's supposed to work, that's for sure!

I see you are using Windows. In that case this could be a graphics driver that needs to be updated.
