I photograph architectural interiors and the radial tool is my go-to for managing bright windows.  I would love for this tool to be rectangular so I can stop using a round peg in a square hole.  Any insight about this tool evolving to include this functionality?

For Lr-CLASSIC users?

Add your request to a forum thread where Adobe might see it-

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-filter-shapes

In the meantime we can only hope for a future development. Something like a polygonal lasso tool (as in Ps) would be a big help.

 

My work-arounds can be- (which you probably already know!)

Extremely large brush with Auto-Mask 'on'. (hold [Alt] for the 'Erase' brush when it overfills).

Small Brush and hold [Shift] to draw straight lines within all window boundaries then brush centre areas.

And make use of 'Range Mask' for Luminance range restriction to a Brush or Gradient.

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 9.4, Lightroom 3.4, Photoshop 2020 (21.2.1), Nikon DSLR, Windows-10.

Excellent suggestion!  I've used the brush tool in a separate, but similar way.  The addition of the Shift key was the missing link.  Thank you!

Great idea. Meanwhile, have you tried turning on the Auto Mask while using the Adjustment Brush? I have found that it does a good job staying within window frames as long as there is sufficient contrast.
