Mask removing entire layer instead of selected area?

When I draw a mask, the entire layer is removed instead of the area I’ve drawn out. I’ve seen some people have a similar issue, which was solved by adding a mask that covers the whole layer, setting it to ‘add’, and then doing the mask you want to do underneath. I’ve tried this and it works in the editor mode, but not compositing. It doesn’t matter if the mask is set to ‘add’ or ‘subtract’, it removes the whole layer every time. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Kind of solved the problem accidentally. I closed the software and came back to it later to have another go, and everything was working fine. So I get the old 'off and on again' trick was the answer.
