I didn't update between last night and this morning, unless photoshop did that automatically without asking (which I thought it did not do). For some reason all my stuff is gone. How do I get it back. All my brushes and patterns are hand made but I didn't save them to a new brush set.
It seems that the Preferences in Creative Cloud desktop was left marked unchecked when the app got auto-updated. To keep or not keep prior versionpreferences (which includes presets, brushes, actions, workspaces), make sure that's checked: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/uptodate.html
I'd recommend that you re install the presets again.
That article doesn't describe my issue at all. I'm not trying to migrate preferences, I'm trying to find a way to restore the ones that are missing. My brush and patterns are missing from every version of photoshop's preset folder.
The comment about CC Preferences is incorrect, The cloud settings say "Import previous settings and preferences". My brushes and stuff would be included in that, right? Checked means it should be bringing my stuff over. Am I wrong in intepreting that setting?
This is what my settings look like.
Also it kept my Actions and unused workspaces for some reason.
I'm also getting an error every time I open Photoshop that says "This gradient file is bad or corrupted."
