(When Using a Mac, Photoshop CC 2015, although I think this has been an issue for many versions.)

When option-clicking on a layer mask to edit it directly, the patch tool seems to have no effect. It previews properly, but releasing the button to complete the operation keeps the pixels exactly as they were.

Other tools, like the clone stamp, seem to work as expected.

Hmmm... just applied the 2015.0.1 update and it seems to be working. Thanks for checking!
