OSX,
It's got to be something easy I'm doing wrong..... After creating any window, now I can't add color, curves, feathering without the window (shape)disappearing. Yesterday it was working fine....
I upgraded to 2.8.10 today

RE: Shape disappears after feathering it.
In the example you posted, your elliptical selection is only about 800 x 400 px, yet you are trying to feather 1200 px.
Feathering applies to area inside and adjacent to the selection border to make a smooth transition with it's surroundings.
By choosing 1200 pixels, you are feathering your selection almost out of existence, hence why you no longer can see it.

As an experiment, fill your ellipse with a colour.
Then feather it by 100.
Edit->Clear
See the result.
Undo Clear (Ctrl-Z)
Undo Feather (Ctrl-Z)
Now Feather by 1200.
Edit Clear.
See result.

Hope this helps.
