when i reopen a doc with vector shapes on cs6 the shapes that have a gradient change the colors to a gradient made of the foreground and background colors that i had set in that moment:( like all the gradients turn grayscale, ussually or any other 2 color combination i had. i dont want to rasterize or convert to smart objects the vector shapes.
i think im saving the gradients in a wrong way or something, so if someone can clarify this to me it will be really helpfull
I'm not able to reproduce. Here is what I tried:
1. Create a new document
2. Change the foreground and background colors (blue/red...)
3. Add a vector rectangle
4. Change the File to Gradient, select the Foreground/Background gradient. Rectangle is now red and blue.
5. Save and close the file.
6. Set to default colors (black and white)
7. Reopen the file.
The shape layer still has the same colors as when I closed it, it is not effected by changes I made while the file is closed. Nor can I change the colors of the gradient simply by changing the foreground and background colors. I have to reapply the gradient for it to update with my current swatches.
What are your exact steps?
its strange, same steps here.
1-create a new document...preset is international paper a4 300ppp
2-change the foreground and back
3.create a rectangle with the rectangle tool,
4-change the fill to gradient, so the color change.
5-save and close
6-set default colors
7-reopen, now the shape turns grayscale. and the gradient on the shape dialog updates as well
Maybe its something about the configuration? preset manager or something like that? idk this is so strange.
Tanks for the reply, looking foward to your answer.
It's a known thing. See CS6 Gradient fills on shapes different after reloading?
Possibly, it happens in the Mac versions but not Windows versions of Ps since it happens on my Mac but not on Noel's PC.
Ohh i made it work now.
i restore the preset gradients, and now i follow the same steps and it works well, it dosnt change at all.
Something went wrong with some config i guess, but idk.
Anyways thanks for your help. if u can discover what was wrong let me know.
