Bug: 3D Lighting Duplication

I may have found a bug in regards to 3D Lights.


Steps to reproduce:


- Opened an image in Photoshop CS6 Beta.

- Created a standard text layer.

- Extruded the text.

- In the 3D Panel, I selected the default Infinite Light 1.

- In the Properties Panel, I clicked on the Custom dropdown to choose a new preset.

- Selecting any of the presets created a new light, and in some cases, 2 new lights.


Expected behavior:


Choosing a preset should change the current light's properties, rather than adding a new light.

    Hi Howard,


    When selecting a light preset it changes the lights for the scene you're working in, including altering the lights (and amount of them) that are there.


    For instance, if you start with a basic Infinite (default) light then switch to the Fire preset, you'll notice 2 lights now, and the colors and settings of both lights has been adjusted to create the Fire preset.

    So it does change the current light's color, as well as adding a new second light with a color to get the desired effect intended by the preset.


    Moving from there, Select the Hard Lights preset --

                   Now you have 3 lights, all of them different color from the Fire colors (which were reds and orange, and now all 3 are grays)


    Is this not what you're seeing Howard?
