Missing Gradient Lines/Pins in Masking in Lightroom (latest version)

When I drag the Linear Gradient in Masking, the lines are there, but as soon as I let go, they are gone!  I read that others had the same problem but it referred to Lightroom Classic and also read something about pressing the "H" (don't recall what that was about).  In any event, I want to be able to see the lines and pin(s) when I drag the gradient across an image.

  

The attached image shows what mine DOES NOT do.

 

Thank you!

 

Diane K.

 

[Subject changed from "Photoshop" to "Lightroom", as later posts clarified that the question is about LR.]

To the right of where it says Show Overlay (auto) click on the three little dots for

more overlay settings and verify Show Pins and Tools is checked.

That response just made my day! I'm new to the "masking" in Photoshop and
actually didn't even notice the three dots.

Thank you!

This screenshot is from Lightroom, but the question is Photoshop and thus, this is not the correct answer from what I can see.

Aha, at any rate the Camera Raw gradient is not the same thing as the Photoshop gradient tool. Anyone missing their pins and lines in Photoshop won't be helped by Camera Raw settings. Certainly not your fault, but this post is evidently mis-labeled as Photoshop. The reason I mention it is that my pins and lines were missing in the Photoshop gradient tool and this post did not help as expected by the description.

The OP is asking about camera raw. as denoted by the op's provided screenshot.

Yes the title of the thread should be changed to clarify it's about camera raw.

 

Anyhow, if you haven't found a solution to the Gradient Tool issue in photoshop proper, you should create a new thread so as not to confuse other users.

Please start a new post and include screenshots with a description of your issue so we can better assist.

 

I'll move this thread to Lightroom since it is not about Photoshop.

By @Diane in Ohio

 

The "H" that you read about is Ctrl+H (View > Extras), which hides/shows everything that is checked in the "Show" menu just underneath.
