On my Mac, how do I restore my legacy shapes in Photoshop 2020? I'm missing the basics shapes such as arrows, bubbles, etc

I deleted my older version of Photoshop assuming the new version would already include them.

Click to open the Shapes panel menu, and choose Legacy Shapes and More. That will add preset groups to the Shapes panel. Then expand or reorganize the preset groups so that you can get to the shapes you want in a way that's most efficient for you. For example, you might choose to move your favorite shapes into a group that you keep at the top of the panel list.

I'm having the same problem but this solution doesn't help me. I'm using Windows 10. I don't have a choice for 'Legacy Shapes and More'. (see screengrab) and I clicked 'Restore Default Shapes' several times which just repeated the files that were there. Any help? ShapesMissing.jpg

It's enough to drive you bonkers, isn't it? They move basic arrows and grids, but leave with flowers and boats. What????

Hi Adobe Team,

 

Can you please keep it simple, why do you need to remove it in the normal/default menu/panel and put all in a folder under a folder and another folder!

KEEP IT SIMPLE!

WHY does Adobe do these things????

I use a grid shape all the time to set up warps on smart objects, but no! I need a folder full of flowers and boats! That's what the world really needs!

 

I should bill them every time they wreck my workflow, change default buttons, and take away features that have been consistent for the last decade with no way to revert. /rant

It's the little "hamburger" menu in the top right on that panel. Open up the legacy shapes. You can yank them out of that sub-folder if you wish.

I agree....  what used to be a simple click to get to a large variety of shapes is now a completely unnecessary SERIES of steps to get to a large variety of shapes.  And the ''default'' is trees and boats????  WTF???  Why does Adobe feel that it's necessary to make simple things more complicated/convulated???

Thank you! This is very helpful. I wish the shapes were visible instead of the list of folders, but at least they're accessible now.

Good news to you then! You can drag them out of the folders or make new folders. Customize it as you like.

Again Photoshop shipped with live bugs and relied on the community to be the bug testers.
Sort it out Photoshop team!!
