Lightroom: Radial Filter edits show only show in Navigator preview during editing process

As I click on the radial square, it shows in the develop preview the circle, points, and what I am about to edit but as I, for ex: increase exposure or saturation, the edits show only in the navigator preview until I hit enter, then the develop preview shows the final edit. It's hard to see what I'm changing in the navigator preview because the window is so small. Please help!

Can you please go to Help menu > System Info and post the first section of text. That'll provide information about the version you're using and other system specs like your graphics card.

Thanks. That shows a couple of things:

1. That's a really old version, released about April 2017. 
2. You're running High Sierra, and that version of Lightroom wasn't supported on High Sierra.

So, before we can troubleshoot any further, you need to be on a more recent version of Lightroom. The latest is Lightroom Classic 7.5. You'll find that listed in your CC app.

Good try, but it looks like your dock icon (or however you usually open Lightroom) is still for the old one, since it still says Lightroom version: CC 2015.10.1 [ 1117303 ]

Have a look in your Applications folder for Lightroom Classic, or click the Open button next to Lightroom Classic in your screenshot there.

Great job. Are the Radial edits showing up now?

Well the thing is, the radial edits have always shown up. It's just that, as I am editing a picture using a radial edit like for ex: decreasing the exposure, as I decrease the exposure, I can't see the effect of the exposure decrease on my picture in the main view until AFTER I press enter meaning, I can't actively see how much I need to decrease as I am editing which makes it hard for me to see how much I need to fix, change, etc. Does that make sense?

It does, and it sounds really frustrating. The fact it's  happening on multiple versions of Lightroom and it's not being reported by anyone else suggests a conflict with something on your computer. My first port of call would be a preferences reset. How do I reset Lightroom’s Preferences?
