Lightroom CC 2015: Radial filters moved

I am using LR CC 2015.5.1 (on Windows 10) radial filters and they have moved.  I spent a LOT of time placing them to remove spots and they didn't even retain the shapes I drew on them.  This is very frustrating and makes me concerned that my entire library may be messed up.  I don't know how/when this happened.  This library was imported in 2015.5.1 and was not due to an update.  I have also been experiencing lock-ups since updating to this version.  I will post that in a separate post.

I am confused, Keith. Are you using the Spot Removal tool or the Radial Filter tool?

I used the radial filter to remove a red blemish (changed white and clarity). I also used them to adjust the exposure level of their faces. Most of the pictures, the radial filter was much larger and moved off to the right of where I placed them.

Were all Radial Tool's moved on an image or only some of the Radial Tool applications?

Were all images which used Radial Tools affected or just certain images?

All photos had two radial filters applied to them.  One to soften the skin and correct exposure.  Another was applied to a Gorbachev on the forehead.  I used Skin Softening as well as increased the white level.

All images in that folder had the radial filters moved.  It looks like it may be proportional to how the image was cropped.

Is it possible to select all photos in the folder and then move the radial filters for all of them?  I wonder if that is possibly how it happened.

Were the Radial Filters applied on an image by image basis or Copied/Pasted or Synced from image to image?

They were applied on each image separately. Each image was unique, so placement had to be done individually.
