Please someone help. I have ps cc 2014. My layer mask no longer works. Even if It is added with an adjustment layer. I can only get it to work if I select it in channels. Then when I brush on my image with layer attached to reveal some of layer below it paints on with a rubylith. I then have to click apply layer mask. it works this way but not like it used to whereby you just added mask then chose brush and painted and voila. Adobe have been unable to remedy the problem.

The paint brush mode might have switched from Normal to a different type. I recently had this issue and I noticed mine was switched to dissolve. You may want to check that.

Do you have Quick Mask enabled? (Push button below the foreground/background color chips in the tool bar - you can also hit Q to disable it)
