This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: I'd like the ability to invert a mask

Would love to see the ability in Lightroom to 'invert' a graduated filter, including one modified by the brush. Presumably an easy implementation that would allow a quick switch to work on the 'other' part of the photo. much like invert mask/selection in Photoshop.

The [ ' ] key (apostrophe) will invert a graduated filter. However, the brush and erase strokes made on that graduated filter remain where they were (they do not invert).

Thanks Rikk, I had forgotten that one, and it is certainly useful to be aware of. And at the same time not quite what I hope for in the future.. With the recently added ability to modify gradients and radial filters with brushes, we are getting closer to real masking work, and therefore, in my opinion, it becomes more useful to be able to invert a 'mask', both for time saving and accuracy reasons..
