I noticed that my list of brushes and patterns were getting longer and longer with repeats of each one. I think this is because every time I open PS I get this message - Something went wrong while syncing your presets. Please try to restart PC to recover
I uninstalled and reinstalled PS. I restarted PC and checked brushes and patterns - all okay with just a single list for each. I added legacy patterns and brushes to each.
I shut down and restarted my PC again - when PS opened I had the same message as above - Something went wrong... so I hit the OK button (I had to do this several times) and PS opens. But when I checked the brushes and patterns once again everything is being repeated several times over! I've attached a screen print below. If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful. Thanks everyone - Jules
