After being very disappointed with the initial Luminar 3 reliability, I stopped using it and went back to Luminar 2018. The initial Luminar 3 felt like I was using an alpha test version. With the recent announcement of Luminar 3.1 I decided to give it another chance as well as explore the new DAM feature. Unlike the initial Luminar 3.0 version, I was able to do extensive editing to a variety of landscape images without a single crash. I was feeling good at this point. On one of my images I noticed some dust spots, so I went back to remove them using the erase tool. I was able to select the dust spots as needed. After hitting the erase button the spot were erased. To finalize the erasure I hit the done button. To my surprised the dust spots came back. I clicked the Erased image layer just to make sure it was somehow not active to no avail. I tried the same scenario on an another more simple image with no previous edits. The same erase tool anomaly occurs. Please understand I am able to successfully perform the dust spot erasure using Luminar 2018. I have removed and installed Luminar 3 with the Version 3.1.0 build 3597 with the same erase tool anomaly. As a trouble shooting step I created a new user account to start with a fresh ~/Library/ structure and use Luminar 3.1.0 build 3597 as a trial version. The same erase tool anomaly exists.
