Recently saw these new shapes, and I really wanted to use the old ones. So I thought that "restoring to defaults" will bring back the old shapes back. But unfortunately, it just gives me another set of the new shapes. So a couple of questions, first how can I get rid of the extra sets and second, is there a way to bring back the old shapes? TIA.
How about just dragging the folders to the trash can? Then use Legacy Shapes and more.
Thanks Chuck, but where can I see the trash can?
Same here, I cannot see any thrash can
If you don’t see a trash can then you are looking at a list of presets but are not in the actual Shapes panel. To manage shapes (create/edit/delete), open the Shapes panel and do it there; see my earlier reply.
The following instructions aren’t specific to the shape presets; all of the preset types that were recently overhauled and redesigned (Shapes, Brushes, Gradients, etc.) work the same way:
Yes, it’s a lot of steps and definitely not intuitive, but…that’s how they did it. Overall, the redesigned presets are much more flexible than before, it’s only how you get to the old ones that are a pain.
Note that Restore Default always adds the current default presets — not the old ones, and it does not delete anything. It only adds. That’s why Step 1 above is about first deleting the presets and preset groups you don’t want.
Thanks, so yeah it's right there in the window>shapes, that's why I can't see the trash.
thanks a bunch Conrad. I was going crazy trying to delete a duplicate shape folder. I tried from shapes tool menu but no trashcan. followed your method and it worked.
