Hi

I am a subscriber to Photoshop and Lightroom CC and have just noticed (I need to draw a circle) that there is no custom shape tool in the left hand side tool bar; I've always just assumed it was there before. I've checked around and it seems as if it should be there but mine just isn't.

Any help gratefully received

Hover your mouse over the line tool (just above the Hand tool) and select the Custom Shape tool from the menu which appears.

That's very kind of you, just seemed to slip out of my mind, maybe because I'm on holiday in France and the sun and Beaujolais has got to me.

Thanks again

Have you use the Shape Palette hamburger menu to import  customs shapes like Adobe legacy shapes?
