Hi guys,

 

All the keyboard shortcut lists I find for Cloud Based Lightroom show that "O" should cycle overlays. Whether I have Crop, Brush, Healing etc selected.. "O" simply does nothing. I have to right click and select "Cycle Overlay" every time.

 

I'm using version 3.2.1. on Windows. 

 

Please help if you have any suggestions - much appreciated!

Not sure why it stopped working but having to right-click must be annoying. You may need to re-set the prfes so quit Lightroom. Then re-launch the app while holding down the Shift+Alt keys. Click yes to do the reset.

You need to do some brushing. The selective tools (brush, gradient, radial) will show a red mask overlay after brushing/dragging as well as tool overlay.

Thanks for your reply!

 

I have done some brushing, but I have to right click and select "cycle overlay" to see the red mask and/or tool overlay. Simply pressing "O" does not do anything at all. Other keyboard shortcuts seem to work.

 

It used to work.. but now it doesn't!

I had the same issue as OP, additionally, the tutorials available through the help section would freeze up after a random number of steps. Using 99jon's solution solved both problems!! Now if only we reset the prefs on 2020 as easily 😛

Thank you 99jon!
