Greyscale Slider and Greyscale Ramp are color picking instead of just adjusting brightness.

I was hoping someone could help me with my issue with the Greyscale Slider and Ramp. The Greyscale ramp and slider are acting as if I am color picking from the ramp itself instead of just adjusting the brightness, but keeping the same Hue and Saturation. In the past when I used the ramp it would only effect the brightness percentage while leaving the Hue and Saturation percentage stationary.

I'm with c.p. on this. I don't see how it could possibly work any other way: clicking the gray ramp specifies a neutral color. It can't retain H and S if you click a random point on the ramp. It may well be impossible H and S values at the specified brightness. See this recent thread for an excellent example of that: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem/hsb-color-sliders-not-working/td-p/12216149

Which past? 

Photoshop CC 2017 is the oldest version still installed on my computer and the behaviour is the same there. 

 

Or are you saying the B-slider neutralizes the color? 

 

Why do you want to us the Grayscale Ramp to edit non-neutral colors?

Hello, 

 Thank you for your response. I am probably just miss remembering then. The brightness slider still works as intended, so I can just happily use that.

 

Thanks again!

Thank you for your response. I am probably just miss remembering then.  I was interested in it working exactly like how the brightness slider works for HSB

 

Thanks again.
