Tool Presets (Mac): turn OFF Sort-by-Tool

I keep de-selecting Sort-By-Tool in the Tool Presets window, but everytime I restart Photoshop, the tools have been moved around to Adobe's "sort by tool" arrangement, and the sort-by-tool option has become Enabled Again by the Adobe gremlins!


( new Photoshop CS2 for Mac -- one of the reasons I upgraded was because this was a problem with v7 AS WELL ! )

Sounds like the gremlins could be in your Prefs file. Try deleting the Prefs file by holding down Ctrl+Shift+Alt and load Photoshop.

Click OK to delete prefs. Then reset the preferences to your choice and see if it works now.

Yes, I've tried deleting all Prefs. Didn't help.

I tried a "blank" copy of Photoshop CS2 for Mac OSX, without any set prefs or tool presets, etc, and it DOES NOT KEEP the "Sort by Tool" setting if you quit and restart the app.
