Develop module Range Mask Not Working

When using any of the tools associated with the Range Mask, such as the Adjustment Brush, Radial or Gradient Filters, I try and turn on my Range Mask to better define the area that I need adjusted. However, it does not turn on. It's as if the button was deactivated. I'm sure I have something that is causing this but can not figure out what. Any suggestions?

Are you creating/making a brush stroke, Gradient, BEFORE you check the range mask?

Rage mask is not a way to create a mask, it's a way to fine tune a mask. That means you need to have a mask first, so -like 'I-See-Light' said- you need to first create the mask with the Adjustment Brush / Graduated filter / Radial filter, and only then you can activate range mask.

Thank you. I really appreciate the response.
