LIghtroom Classic 10.2 not displaying Local Adjustment Brush 'selection dots'.

Since updating to LRC 10.2 from 10.1, I no longer have any 'selection dots' for any Local Adjustment Brush' modifications. This means I basically get one shot at making the adjustments because there is no way to go back and change things without losing whatever other brush changes happened in the interim, and no way to choose between local adjustments. 

Anyone else have this issue and solve it?

With the Adjustment Brush selected, the Toolbar's "Show Edit Pins" options control the display of the selections "dots" (a.k.a., "pins"). You probably want either the "Auto" or "Always" option. If the Toolbar isn't showing, press the letter "T" (for "Toolbar") to display it.

OMG I feel stupid. Mine was (for many years now) just always set to Auto, and I didn't even know there was a setting to turn it off. I've clicked on the 'show mask' mask button right next to it a million times, but never once noticed that. It's way on the far side at the bottom, and my eyes just haven't gone there or registered that... how dumb. 

Thanks very much!

On a related note, when making changes to lens corrections or transformations, there is a similar dropdown menu for "Show Grid". I would always like mine to stay on Auto, but it often switches itself to "off" without me seeming to cause that change. Any idea why? It's a bit of an annoyance, maybe I'm accidentally hitting a key combo or something?

In Develop, do the menu command Tools > Tool Overlay > Always Show. Do the pins show now?

@John_R_Ellis  Yes, I'm just dumb. I've never used that fieature (always was on auto for years) so I didn't even notice it! Thanks!

No need to feel dumb -- there are all sorts of such hidden things in LR.
