HI There. I have a puzzling issue with Lightroom. Every now and then I want to use a filter for an effect. BUT I find that the filter will not operate in certain parts of the photo. If i try make a start in the center of the photo it just remains an arrow...but if I move to the side or bottom of the photo, I can then use the filter. If I move the anchor point to the center of the photo i cannot make any adjustments to it. Why is this happening and what can I do to stop it. Many thanks for any help
same thing with all the filters
