Combustion question

Anyone here use combustion 3? If so, maybe you can help me out. I'm trying to add a mask to my footage, so I click the "draw mask" operator. According to the manual, the bezier tool used to draw the mask should be pre-selected for me so I can draw the mask immediately. This is not the case. I can't seem to get the mask tools to show up in my toolbar. I've selected the operator and hit F2, but all I get are the standard "positioning" tools. Any help from you guys would be appreciated.

I can't say exactly what your problem is, but a lot of combustion users have had issues when working in different quality modes. Try switching to a different quality mode and see if it works for you.

Another possibility--you might want to make sure the object to which you've applied the operator to can be masked. I can't myself think of an example of something you wouldn't be able to mask.
All the best,
