This is a bug regarding adjustment layers. So I have a picture open and I make a brightness adjustment. Apart from the fact that the layer mask isn't automatically added to the adjustment layer, like in PS - but I can live w/ that - when I do make adjustments, they are not reflected in the file. Like I paint on the layer mask I just manually added in black or white, and it's like I never did anything.

This isn't just an issue w/ the new beta, it's been an issue. Is this a memory problem? What is going on here?

Every adjustment layer incorporates a mask. All you need to do is add the adjustment. Then, with the adjustment layer selected in the Layers panel, paint with Black to suppress the adjustment or with white to reveal the adjustment.

Probably adding the mask manually is part of what's causing your problem.

I should have phrased it better. The issue occurred when I put a mask on an actual layer and painted on it. Nothing happened.

and BTW, i just experienced the same thing again. this time on an adjustment layer with only one mask. i could paint on one side of the mask and it would register, but not on the other. this is not normal behavior.

Sounds a bit confusing ...
Are you sure you're using the  "Paint Brush Tool" and NOT the "Colour Replacement Brush"  ?

I know how to use layer masks. I know what to do w/ them. It seems that Affinity Photo doesn't. If I paint w/ black on a layer mask I expect the photo to show a result in the viewer, but it doesn't. Or it only does on parts of it and on the others it's as I'd never painted on them.

OMG, this has got to be the stupidest thing. When you copy adjustment layers from another document, unlike photoshop the layer is the dimension of that first document. It doesn't adjust to where it's dragged, no matter what you fill it with. That should DEFINITELY be fixed. Jeezes.
