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.
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.
Sweet! Thank you! You brightened my day. 🙂
Again Photoshop shipped with live bugs and relied on the community to be the bug testers.
Sort it out Photoshop team!!
Why mine either doesn't have "Legacy shapes... " option? I have been trying to figure that out for hours and still don't know how to get all the shapes. Please help
Can you post a screenshot of the Shapes Panel, are you going to Window > Shapes and accessing the panel from there
It's the sidebar panel. Windows > Shapes, like what Ged posted, then then folder for Legacy Shapes and More.
I actually made my own folder to bring them up where I wanted them after I got the ones I used.
Oh my god! You saved my day or even week! I`ve searched for this for ages! Thank you so much!!
I can't actually see who ha awoken this old thread, but seeing as someone has, I'd like to give a shout out to the Search Bar. If it is not turned on then do so, because it really is a useful tool for finding your way through possibly hundreds of shapes.
I'm new to the forum but not Photoshop which is probably a handicap as I have a well trodden workflow. Is everyone saying then that selecting shapes has an extra step now by searching through loads of folders unless you create your own folder and put shapes in if you think you are going to use them at some point? It sounds like I can't just select shapes from the top and select the shape any more which may sound like a small task but does add up after a few years? Not sure why this is better now if this is the case.
Yeah, that's pretty much the size of it. BUT you can build your own set of quick access shapes by not putting them into a folder, but just dragging them into the open space below the folders - that's in the Shapes panel.
Thanks Brandon, that's helpful I will give it a go,
