    Develop module Adjustment Brush not always working

    My Adjustment Brush in LR5 is very hit and miss - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I get it to work by clicking on Spot Removal then returning to it. I may need to do that 7 out of 10 times. Any suggestions how I can get rid of this annoying quirk? Thanks
