What version of windows are you using?
Is it a 32 or 64 bit operating system?
This is what I wrote earlier, it must have not went through.
"Anyone else with this problem, I know how to fix it, kind of... I have seen LOTS of threads on other forums, with people having the same problem. I backed out of the Presets folder, creating my own folder, adding a Brushes folder inside it & moved all my custom brushes there. My merged brush files I created are still in the fly out menu AND NO MORE CLUTTER!!!
So, if anyone else has this problem...
EX: Adobe Photoshop/Cool Stuff/Brushes = NO MORE CLUTTERED BRUSH FLY OUT MENU!!!
Blessed Be Everyone!!!"
I'm pretty sure I'm in the right place, since I'm in Photoshop General Discussion... No, I looked at your link for Windows 7 & I cannot add my brush collection to Presets/Brushes as the link states to do. I've already done that, as my original post states... There are too many brushes that fill up the fly out menu. The only problem I have now, is when I try to "load" brushes/ABR files, (Photoshop/Cool Stuff or Presets/Brushes) it doesn't show ANY in any of the folders, not even the original presets, oddly. No ABR files that are actually in the folders, show up through "Load". It only shows the ones I created by earlier merging brush sets. *sigh* So, the ones I added, don't clutter my fly out menu anymore. But now, I can't even access them to combine them for my fly out menu...Still lost, kindsa...Maybe I have to edit the files in the folders by unchecking "read only"??? I have noticed they are protected files cuz I have to use administrator rights just to move the ABR files to a new location...I'll let you know what happens.
Well. I have to add them back to my presets folder, do my merging of brush sets, the just remove the originals from the presets/reset the presets list & re start Photoshop. What a pain. Too bad they don't just delete from the preset list when you delete them...
