I randomly have the problem of a not working local adjustment at all.
I see the red overlay mask, but for example reducing saturation has no effect at all. When this happens I have to shutdown LR and restart LR to get reid of the malfunction.

Doing the same operation on the newly restarted LR it works as expected.

Same here as per my posting . I have found this happens when trying to use local adjustment when soft proofing any I can profile. A restart has fixed the problem on a couple of occasions however this only lets it work once before occurring again.

Does it happen if you turn the GPU acceleration off from the Preferences>Performance tab?

Hi Simon
Sadly it still does it. The weird thing is it's okay at first, but if you move onto another image it stops working and then requires a restart of LR to get it to work again, but then it happens again the minute you change photos. :(
