I have a feeling this is operator error but I can't find an answer.

When I enable the ADJUSTMENT BRUSH (just started playing with it) and paint an area, the mask appears. I make adjustments using the slider but I can't toggle off the mask to see the adjustments.

When I paint, the mask is red. If I toggle 'Show selected Mask Overlay' off, it turns yellow. I can use shift-O to go through the colours but not mask off.

I have DEVELOP opened on one screen and a secondary screen on. The mask always show on the secondary as yellow even after clicking on DONE for the adjustment brush.

Thanks for any guidance

Attached is an illustration of what I'm experiencing. I've shut down the secondary display for this test.

Yep. Your image changes color under the brush, because you paint with a large Temperature correction towards yellow.

Thanks Johan. I have no idea of how that got set but realize it is somehow user error. When I opened the brush and saw the settings, I assume it was an inheritance of some sort. As I mentioned, I'm new to the adjustment brush. After your comment I went back to the FAQ and saw all sliders were 0 in Fig 12.4.3.

All works as advertised now.
