This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop Lightroom / Camera RAW: Labeling or layerlist for local adjustments.

Local adjustments are awesome! They save a lot of time and with a powerful workstation they allow to do lots of retouch steps in Lightroom without even launching Photoshop (e.g. dodge/burn or local color adjustments)

For non destructive powerusers: Using these adjustments (Brush, Gradient, Spot) extensively, quickly becomes confusing. You have lot's of dots in the picture and obviusly lose overview while adding more adjustments

To find a certain adjustment you need a good memory - and I don't - or you need to hover over all dots for reidentification. Which can be very time-consuming due to lower performance with more adjustments.

Optionally labeling the adjustments (either next to spot or as list) would be very handy.
What do you think?

It is now 2017 and there are a fair number of newer programs that have come forth to displace Lightroom by offering the same or similar features with various levels of polishing features poised to outshine LRCC. I look at these occasionally and realize I do want some of the features they are offering because what might seem like a feature not worth the while to develop would, in fact, make our lives easier, especially as the RAM/Speed issues with LR are only being incrementally resolved. A corresponding list of the Gradient / Radial / Brush tool pins in an image could go a long way towards easing the pain of managing image workflows and also in teaching lightroom. Imagine being able to select a specific pin from a cluster from a list without the painstaking method of clicking through every single one and activating the mask overlay to find the one you need to make further adjustment to. Please Adobe, consider adding this in your next update
