Losing styles too.

Every now and then (not every single time) when I open up CC 2023 my styles & patterns are gone (not even the ones that came pre-loaded)! I have not reset to the defaults ever - bc I have added quite a few custom styles & patterns that I use on the regular. Again, I have not restored to the defaults. All the custom actions and brushes are showing, just not my styles or patterns. 

 

I usually have to re-import everything, which takes time & is annoying. Plus, I have to remember where the style & pattern files are in my computer ...

 

I have read through the posts about this from 2017 and don't understand the solution and see that one was not really solved. I would like to know how to correct & prevent this.

Did you not save the pat- and asl-files in the default locations (~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop 20XX/Presets/Styles~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop 20XX/Presets/Patterns) so they are available via the dropdown menu of the respective Panels?

Not really sure how to access the default locations but I will see if I can find those ASAP. I have been adding pat & asl through the import features  - I thought that was the most common way, am I wrong?

 

Thanks for reaponding immediately!! 🙂

It does not seem like the most convenient way. 

 

To get to your user library click the alt-key to reveal »Library« in the Finder’s »Go«-Menu.

Are you in the Library or the User Library? 

Please post a screenshot that shows the full path.

I think I was in the User Library, but I did find the PS 2023 Library & added all my pat & asl files into the appropropriate folders & opened up those windows in PS to see they are full again! 🙂 Now, let's hope they stay there permanently ...

Hi @Listn2yrmom in additon to what @c.pfaffenbichler suggested - you should confirm that Photoshop is listed in Apple System Preferences/Security and Privacy/Full Disk Access.

Are you an admin on this Mac? Clicking the plus sign should allow you to add any application to the list with proper credentials.

Hi @Listn2yrmom go to your Apple icon top left and choose System Preferences...

Then navigate to Security and Privacy. Full Disk Access is an option in the list.

PS Beta shows when you have both installed. It applies the setting to both.
