Histogram and Gradient Fill layer issues

Hi, I still having two annoying problems:

 

The first occurs when I add a curve or level adjustment layer the histogram in the properties evaluates the whole image. If I make a selection and copy it to a new layer (below the curves) obviously the histogram in the curves properties remains the same. But if I convert the curves to a clipping layer affecting only the small copy, the histogram remains the same too!! I assume that the normal behavior would be the histogram showing the clipping information.


The other problem is: if I add a GRADIENT FILL LAYER (not a gradient map or simple gradient applied with the gradient tool). I´m able (at this point) to move the position of the gradient by clicking and dragging in the canvas. But if I access to the Gradient Editor, don´t matter if I do some edition or not, I´m unable to move the gradient again. Must to do an additonal step: click OK and then double click the thumbnail of the Gradient Fill layer to be able to move again the gradient.


I would appreciate any suggestion or if you tell me please if I'm misunderstanding something please.

 

I made a little video (1:25 min) showing these issues, I would appreciate if you can see it.

Hi. The histogram in curves doesn't ever seem to change on adjustments. I suggest watching the actual Histogram panel to live view the changes. As for the Gradient fill, when you click the gradient editor, the program thinks that's what you want to adjust, so it doesn't give you interactivity on the image, itself. It would be nice if we could do both - and I'd suggest adding that as a feature request at https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family
I'd upvote that one, when i see it!

Thank you for your response. Both features (Curves and Levels histogram changes -when the layer is a clipping mask; and the ability to move Gradient Fill after click the editor) they were in PS 2019. That is why I find it very strange that PS 2020 has lost them.

I don't want to be so insistent but they were features that were in PS 2019. That is why it seems very strange that PS 2020 has lost them.
