Hi,

 

After creating a layer mask I used to press G to activate the gradient tool and 

create gradients on the layer mask. On PS 22 this is not working, G activates the 3D material drop tool.

Where is the gradient tool?

 

I understand there would be work arounds like creating a gradient fill layer then rasterizing it, copying and pasting it into the mask but, really Adobe? The gradient tool was so much easier.

 

Am I missing something? Help!

 

Thank you!

Shift G to cycle through the 3 modes of the tools under the key command of G.

I am missing something here. Shift + U will cycle through the shapes for instance. But the suggested shift + G will not cycle through anthing. 

 

BUT! the 3 dots did solve the problem! I Added the gradient back to the toolbar, thank you so much MikeGondek!

Also look into saving a workspace once you have configured. Window >> Workspace >> new workspace

 

There are also 3 dots at the bottom for edit toolbar, where you can edit the toolbar.
