Hi friends
I need your help.
Using a 3rd gen iPad Pro with 15.2 PadOS. Lightroom for iPad is 7.1.1
Since upgrading to the new v7 with masking, I cannot get the brush mask to work with Apple Pencil. I twice lodged it with adobe, but they automatically closed the tickets.
I have “only draw with Apple Pencil” toggled off, and can get the brush mask to work correctly with my finger, but it won’t create the mask when using the pencil.
I have tried logging out then back in, I have deleted and reinstalled the app, I even erased my iPad and started from scratch…same result. Last week I got my wife a fresh new iPad Air, and it behaves exactly the same way.
Does anyone have the brush mask working correctly with Apple Pencil?

Video attached (oh.…and pardon the frog noises in the background of the video )

AFAIK, this is a known bug. That is probably why they close individual tickets that effectively do not say anything but “it happens to me too”.

Thanks Johan. So strange that they let this bug through and have not have fixed it in the last few updates. Brush masks with Apple Pencil is probably the most important feature for iPad
