Brush Tool issue

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 months ago
When using the Brush tool, I would like to make adjustments, view in Full screen and continue brushing without the changes being set. In Lightroom 5 I was able to do so. It is incredibly frustrating to have changes automatically set after viewing in Full Screen. Please update this or advise on how to work around this. Currently, I have to export my RAW image out of Classic CC to JPEG and into Lightroom 5 to be able to edit. grrrrrrrr

Hi Christine, sorry to hear that.

It appears that the switching of the tool is causing this frustration for you when you exit the full-screen mode. I will be filing a bug report for the engineering team to investigate and fix. In the meantime, you could try switching back to the brush tool with the Keyboard Shortcut Q, followed by exiting the full-screen mode with F. 

Let us know if this workaround helps in your workflow. Thanks.

I thought K was for the brush and Q was for the Spot Removal tool?

Forget that spot removal. It is crap. Does not work in most cases for me. Very crazy to use.

I'm not sure I understand the problem.  When you exit Full screen, can you not simply click on the pin and continue the brushing?  Certainly, clicking K to exit full screen mode takes you straight back to brush mode.  You still need to select the most recent pin to continue that brushing.  Works for me.

That is correct. I worked with the online technician at Adobe this morning to try to figure out the issue...he could not do it either. Perhaps I am doing something wrong. What do you mean by pin?

When you have selected the brush tool there is a 'pin' - a little grey circle - at the point where you started brushing the adjustment.  Every time you select 'new' with a brush adjustment, you get a new 'pin' for that adjustment.  If you want to extend or alter a particular adjustment, just click on its pin.

Ahhh....okay, so...problem solved. My set up was not showing the pins. I never looked for that because I have always been able to adjust as I go without having to reset or find the pin. SO...now, I have the pins showing and that will help I think! Thank you so much!

Another quick tip [ H ] will hide/unhide pins. If it is missing give the H-key a try.
