You can set the source for the history brush to any history state in the history panel, not just snapshots.

Yes, but would be even more helpful to have a tool for example:

History Brush Tool (already existing)
Art History Brush Tool (already existing)
Last Step History Brush or Undo History Brush

So you can use History Brush Tool for the last step only without opening the History Panel.

Unfortunately that wouldn't work too well -- because your first paint stroke becomes the undo state, and the next paint stroke wouldn't work as expected. You really need to target a specific history state, so it retains that source and doesn't keep changing sources.

Fair enough.

What about the idea that there is separate tool (let's say it's the "Undo History Brush") that works exactly the same as "History Brush" - but sets the last step as History Source when chosen as set it back to previous History Step when another Tool is selected.

You mean, if, when you activate the tool, it would target the last step as a source? I am wondering if the scripts events manager could not do that?

Would it be more intuitive if the History Brush was set to the last History State by default then? If any other History State is needed, it could be set manually as usual. This would be a lovely addition to Fade Last function as the history Brush could use various opacity to restore the image from the Last Step as needed?

I'm not quite following your issue. Can you post a video of the behavior you're trying to describe?

For me too, but not only for shapes. If I make a selection and I want to align layers centered the layers align to the center of the artboard and not the selection..

I can repro. Looks like an unintended side effect of this change: "The Align command now works with a single selected layer within an art board." https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/usi...

We've logged a bug to correct it.

Good morning,

I think align to selection might be broken.

1) Make a new artboard doc
2) Draw a shape
3) Draw a marquee
4) Try centering the shape inside your selection using Layer > Align layers to selection. The shape aligns to the artboard.

I have found a bug with the lastest release of photoshop on mac. Whilst using an artboard I am unable to align objects to the marquee selection. When I use the align to edges button it always aligns to the artboard and not the selected area.

I've found that the alignment to selection works as normal when I either select two layers or delete the artboard layer. It would be great to know when this issue can be fixed.

I have the same issue. I don't care about the library features, artboard other CC stuff which are bloating the app size and slowing down the processing time.
I want this sorted now.

This is just about only feature Sketch doesn't have. So otherwise I'd happily switch over to Sketch for UI design.

Alignments do work within design space. Nevertheless it's not fun switching back and forth. Fix please! Super annoying bug I can't work like this.
