ariar61845839  If you can be more specific as to what you tried and where it didn't work (or what didn't show on your screen) someone could probably help.

Not to belabor the point, but why was it changed like that?  I haven't touched the toolbar settings since the latest version was installed, so apparently it installs this way.  Freaking WHY??

If you used the bucket tool Adobe has saved you from yourself by hiding it.  Future users will never know about it.  It's so 1990's and when you work at Adobe and were born in the 1990's removing things is a way of advancing ones career.

Easy there, buddy, We get that you've got the whole pretentious graphic design complex going on, but us plebs might still want to use the tool for simple tasks. I wanted to use the paint bucket to fill in half shapes for a pedigree chart for my bio class, but I guess that's too 1990s of me. Thank God Adobe saved me from this egregious crime against electronic arts.

I don't think your missing the Paint Bucket Tool.

Just left click and hold on the Gradient Tool in the toolbox to get to the Paint Bucket Tool.

No, the paintbucket does not appear. Its like its totally missing in this update. I really need that tool! I often make selections in layer-masks and then fill them with black, white or grey to hide or to show.. I cannot do this anymore! Its really frustrating!

I get the same error spontaneously after my workspace completely disappeared.  It was not a matter of long pressing or ALT-clicking the tool but going to Edit > Toolbar... (as mentioned above) but instead of resetting the toolbar, I moved the paint bucket took back to its rightful place.  See visual below.

Edit > Toolbar...

That worked for me. Thank  you! Still not quite sure WHY they would remove that...

 

Client PNG Logo > Image Size to Height of clients CMS system banner > Canvas Size to width of banner area > BUCKET TOOL to fill in white (because CMS system doesn't support transparant in 9/10 cases) > Save.

 

Bucket tool is an essential tool for that very specific job.

 

Can it be done with layers, and marking background as white - Yes.

 

Can it be done with rectangle or similar followed by flatten - Yes.

 

Is all other methods just slower and more difficult when the client needs the logo replaced *now* - YES!

I have a new PS 2020 and there is no fill tool. I did the steps above and still nothing. I am a beginner so maybe missing something g, but there is no bucket icon even after resetting defaults.
