Using LR 5 on a Windows box.
The Adjustment Brush is barely visible. It is so bad, I cannot use the tool effectively (can't accurately see where the mask starts/stops and certainly can't erase the adjustment brush.
Make sure you have the Flow and Density controls turned up to a reasonable value in the Brush Attributes section of the Adjustment Brush panel.
That did the trick. Spot on.
