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

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.
