Hello is there anyway to save all adjustments that I have made with the adjustment brush?
Creating a brush preset only saves the values but not the area that I painted.
The reason is, I wish to create a star shape with one brush and to be able to use it in the future.
This works when I save the save and paste the "Settings" within an editing session but are lost when I close LR.

Hi and welcome to the Forums!

No, not really a way to do this as adjustments are regarded, by their nature, to be image-specific. What you could do though is create a 'spare' image, perhaps in a reference folder, and paste the brush settings to that. Then in the future, when you want that specific brush stroke, open that photo, copy the settings and paste.
