Is it possible to see custom shapes without folders?

When I'm looking for a custom shape within PS, it shows me a huge list of dozens of folders. Is there some way I can set PS to default to showing me the images without the folders?

 

Thanks!

 

(I've attached a screenshot of the folders-only view.)

Ctr + clicking on the triangle next to Conifer Trees will expand all groups or folders at that level.

 

Another option is to gather all shapes into a single group or folder and then save them. This method allows you to view all shapes within a single group.

Thanks, but do you know the location of the custom shapes folder for PS 2024 on Mac? I Googled it, which said they're under Presets, and they're not there. I've attached a screenshot showing all my folders under presets.

On a Mac, go to your applications folder and contextual menu right-click on the Photoshop.app icon, then select "Show Package Contents":

 

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop 2024/Adobe Photoshop 2024.app/Contents/Required/Default Custom Shapes.csh

 

I'm not sure if that actually solves your problem though!

 

I believe that Bojan was telling you to use the Shapes panel to select and move and organise the shapes into a single folder and then to save that from the panel, not to use the folders in your actual operating system.

Oooooh, good point. Thank you. I'll try the easier way first, then. Back in the day, I used to be able to crawl around in the trenches of the programs, but I wouldn't want to attempt that anymore unless I absolutely needed to.

 

Much appreciated.

That's how things used to be, Adobe added folders as users wanted more management options. I guess you can't please everyone!  :]
