When using spot removing tool my images are portrayed as negatives???

When trying to remove the odd spot on photos, I use the shortcut 'Q' and the photo turns into a negative drop out image??? I have tried the restarting thing often, what to do!?
Thank you
ps I can't seem to HIDE Lightroom with Cntrl H... any thoughts?

I have Lightroom Classic, updated, a MacPro laptop with latest updates.

Un Check the tick box in bottom left under your image that turns this negative view on and off. It is helpful to find spots but you can switch it off. P

Hi Chrissy! Check if you have Visualize Spots ticked in the bar just below the image (and above the filmstrip) when the Spot Removal tool is selected. If ticked, then untick it.

Also, the equivalent key to the Ctrl (or Control) in Windows is the Cmd (or Command) key in macOS - not the control key (which Macs have, but that's for another purpose). So you need to press Cmd-H to minimise/hide the active application window on Macs...

One note: you can't Hide in full screen view, hit the green button to leave Full Screen View, then Hide becomes available.
