Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): LR Classic, latest update

OK, I can not edit previous made gradient filters on photo's, even with the pin presets on auto or always on, I can not find the pins back. Extremely annoying. The H button is not working to bring them back, I have no idea of what to do. I could go down in the history to where i added the filter, but then lose all made adjustments after I applied the filter. I have the same problem with both the gradient tools, circular and Linear... Who can help me out? I have restarted LR, have toggled the auto and always and never on and off in the toolbar, nothing works. Is this a bug? Also, the edit and brush in the Menu next to New are greyed out...

Hmmm...works for me. The pin doesn't show up until I move the cursor into the image. You could try resetting the preferences file:

Resetting the lightroom preferences file - updated

I keep having the cross cursor, hovering over the photo in develop mode... Which means all I can do is make new adjustment layers... Will try the prefs, although I did that a week ago already... Thanks for the suggestion!
