Why can't I edit - develop - adjust exposure etc WITHOUT a Mask?
Every other lightroom version would allow me to do this?? Its very frustrating. Am considering just using Camera raw.
Do you mean your Basic controls in the right panel of the develop module are not showing? If so then right click near on of the other headers and a dialog box should pop up and allow you to select/deselect the one you wish to be available for use.
