Hi nickb ,
The exposure adjustment is not visible as you have applied a mask.
I tried reproducing it at my end but it is working as expected.
You are using a preset applying the adjustments.Try using a default preset or simply change a different adjustment and see if it helps.
The first shot shows the image before the adjustment, the second after applying the brush to the cupboard door in the centre. I have exaggerated the effect in the second shot by turning the adjustment way up. As you can see it has spilled over onto the floor, ceiling, walls and the other cupboard.
I have just found out that it doesn't affect all files. I have just started working on a different view of the kitchen and that appears to be fine.
Thanks for your input.
I did try with the triangle clicked to reveal the full menu options (I had always thought this triangle was just a means of accessing more than one action). I had the Exposure adjustment set, but all other options to zero, but the result was the same - it was selecting a much larger area than just the segment I 'painted'.
I could try trashing the Prefs file, but I'm reluctant to just yet as there's a fair bit of work involved recording all the settings I currently have in place.
I have noticed that when LR is active there is very little free memory. I have Memory Monitor which is showing almost no free memory, over 16GB is being used by the Cache. Could this be having an effect? I don't recall a problem before the recent update. Strangely though, when painting in an adjustment it seems to be instantly responsive, which was't always the case prior to this update.
