colour wheel no longer pops up after update when using gradient tool

Shift Alt and right click brings up the colour wheel under the cursor (if chosen in prefs), after the update this is no longer the case with the gradient tool active - however it still works for the brush.

A recent update to the gradients has probably broken this.

This tool is super convenient for speed painting & power users.

Works just fine on this end (Mac) with the last update, which did fix a number of bugs picking colors with Gradient. Make sure you are on 24.1.1 (double dot release for bug fixes).

Hi @neilr50346528, as @Ged_Traynor said this should be fixed in 24.1.1.  What is your Ps version you are using now?

 

Thank you,

Cory

Well I'm on a PC - I was aware that there was a fix for the colour picker with the gradient tool active - but this is different to the bug I'm describing.  (I'm a concept artists and I use this every day along with other artists - we all had the same problem that was fixed with the V24.1.1 update) However this is about the colour wheel, more specifically in Edit>Preferences>General  - then Colour picker set to [Adobe] and HUD color picker set to [Hue Wheel]. Pressing Shift with Alt and right clicking brings up the wheel directly under the cursor (which is brilliant and time efficient)  - its always done that when the brush tool is active, now it no longer does it when the gradient tool is active - which previously it did. Hope this is more clear.

Hi, it was fixed for the simple color picker, not the HUD color picker.

The Hud Color Picker works here with photoshop 24.1.1 macOS Ventura 13.2 with the Gradient Tool by pressing Ctrl+Cmd+Option left click.

 

Does not work on Windows 10 with photoshop 24.1.1 with the Gradient Tool by pressing Alt+Shift right click.
