Not able to edit synced photos on S9+ phone

I have Lightroom CC mobile app on my tablet, phone, and CC on the pc. The app (mobile) opens and I see all of my cloud based photos, I can open the photo in the app, but cant adjust the "Selective" section... I'm able to edit cloud based, synced photos with my tablet and pc, but not with the phone. I just want to be able to edit exposure, contrast, lights, shadows and such.. I do seem to be able to crop, healing, profiles seem to work.. I just got off the phone with Adobe support. It was a waste of time. I think the language barrier didn't help at all either. Has anyone else had issues with the Android version on S9+ phone?

Hi Steve, welcome to the forum!

I may be stating the obvious, but have you added a brush stroke or gradient, via the + button in the corner?

Thanks for the reply! Well I'm trying to do a global lighten or adjustment of the photo. So I'm trying to adjust the whole pic..

In that case you don't want selective, which is for doing selected areas. You want the light section of sliders in the bottom toolbar, which affect the whole photo.

Yes, thank you! Why couldn't the folks at Adobe help me with that? I do sincerely appreciate you taking the time to help me sort that out! Cheers!
