the brush tool in CC 2015 has stopped working when working with layers mask. It seems to work around the very edges if the two overlayed images but does nothing on the image its self, suddnely stopped working

Check your brush settings in the options bar. Do you have a blend mode other than "Normal"?

Hi Jeffrey
Thanks for the reply, tried that ,as well as re-setting tools, brushes etc, it has been working fine just suddenly stopped. everything is at 100% flow etc, it is CC 2015 so will un-install and re-install to see if this fixes it .
Thanks

I don't believe uninstall/reinstall would be necessary. It's usually some setting with the tool, or having the wrong tool selected.
