    Have you ever bothered to save any of those presets?

    Were the patterns and brushes custom ones or just existing sets you had loaded?

    In the Preset Manager you can select several items and save them as a preset.

    Preferably to the proper folder (either in the program folder or the user library) so that they can subsequently be loaded easily from the respective Panels’ fly out menus.


    Preferences can become corrupted and if presets have not ever been saved they can get lost thusly.

    Somehow I can't select but one brush at a time so I can't save as a set. What am I missing?

    In the preset manager, shift click to select multiple presets, then save the selected presets as a preset file.
