I'm using Photoshop CS6. I discovered recently the Fade preset for brushes and wanted to try it out.
So I select Fade in "Shape Dynamics" and set number of steps to 120, but the stroke showing in the brush presets menu looks like it's using Pen Pressure and not Fade: both ends are thin.
Moreover, when I use it on a path, I can't get a fade effect either. And right after I apply the brush to a path, or when I go to another section in the presets, Pen Pressure gets selected automatically instead of Fade. I mean that when I get back, Pen Pressure is selected even though I didn't touch anything. Trying to save the preset doesn't keep Fade either.
I tried on different brushes and even reloaded Photoshop, without success. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
