Hi, I use Mac, I have lost the setting, brushes, colour swatches , " recent works", plug in when starting...

 

It seems I have installed a new software in a new computer without logging into my adobe account...

 

Please tell me whats happened? 

 

I can still use photoshop 2022 to do my daily work but not the latest photoshop 2023 without all of my setting.

 

Thank you

In Preferences > General you have Preset Syncing to sync brushes, patterns, swatches... Do you have this option enabled in both versions of installed software? From what I can understand you have two versions installed on the same machine?

 

There is also Edit > Preset > Migrate Presets option to migrate presets from older version.

Did you previously save your brushes prior to migrating to 2023?

If you didn't those brushes, swatches, etc. are all temporary files with no resources to transfer.

You need to have saved .abr and swatch files to migrate.

I was about to recommend drag or copy-paste method but Adobe is against that method. Here is what they recommend https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/plug-ins-photoshop-troubleshooting.html
