Hello, I am James from Chicago. I've just tried to alter some brush settings, such as turning on the shape dynamics' fade option and turning off the transfer option, but after drawing the first line, the default settings are restored. I tried the locke icon and saved the brush, but the default setting keeps coming back.
Hi James, sorry to hear about the trouble. Is it possible to record a video of what is happening or post screenshots? With the brush icon selected, right-click on the brush icon on the top bar and choose Reset Tool. I just tested this: I set fade to 300 percent, closed the image, opened another one, selected a new brush and the last fade setting is still there without saving the preset or locking the Shape Dynamics. Working in the same document, the settings are retained with each new brush stroke. Are you trying something different?
