Hi there, I tried to mask over type, but when I use the black paintbrush tool over it, nothing shows up. I can see it in my history tab though. When I used PS 2018, it works. It must be some error in the newer version. Please help?

I suspect you have a blend mode other than Normal assigned to the brush. Try resetting the Tool settings: Unexpected results using a tool
