On first use on an image the guides of the local adjustment tools are not visible (see linked video for a demo)

Steps to reproduce:
  • In any library mode, select an image and place the mouse cursor in the central area
  • Press M (or Shift+M) to select the gradient or the radial filter
  • Wait for Lightroom to automatically switch to develop mode, then click and drag to place the filter, release the mouse button
⇒ neither the pin, nor the guides are visible until you hover one of the side panels with the mouse, then go back over the image






Workaround: hovering one of the side panels before dragging to place the filter avoids the issue.

Extra info:

  • This issue has been around for a while now, but is still present in R11.
  • There are other steps that can lead to the bug, the ones described are the most easily reproductible
  • Whether the « Show edit pins » option is on « Auto » or « Always » makes no difference.
Configuration:
MacBookPro / Catalina 10.15.4 / Core i7 2.6GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon Pro 460 with full graphics acceleration enabled

Not sure this is your problem but all the images that are showing in the Grid view are show an Exclamation Mark which normally mean LrC thinks the file is missing. Can't find the file in the drive and folder it thinks it should be in.

yeah, I didn't notice that while recording, but it happens even when everything is fine with the metadata

Do you mean the Show Grid option? Set it to Always.

I can reproduce this using the keyboard shortcuts from the Library grid view as described but only when the Show Edit Pins option is set to Auto. Changing this setting to Always results in the radial and graduated filters behaving normally when used in this way.

You're right. After a few more tests, it looks like it happens only when the Show Edit Pins option is set to "Auto".

I can reproduce also from Develop or Library.
