Photoshop 22.3.1 - Saved custom brushes do not retain attributes after closing the program

I have hundreds of custom-created brushes. Many have attributes such as color or color dynamics built into the brush.

The brushes can be saved to the local "brushes" folder and appear in the drop down menu. The brushes can be imported into the brush panel just fine ... they retain all previously saved attributes. However, if the program is closed and reopened any of the previously imported brushes in the brush panel now lose any color attributes. 

As a work-around, I now delete all the brushes from the panel and use the drop-down menu to re-install the brushes so that they will work properly again.

All previous versions of photoshop did not have this issue.


Any fix planned for this ?
