Hello fellow Affinites, 

 

I have always wondered about how to find the gradient tool again after I've gone and done something else. For example, I like to use a black and white adjustment layer and then apply a gradient on top of that to make the photo part b and w and part coloured. After I've established my gradient and then go to another adjustment sometimes I want to go back and tweak the gradient. However, I cannot locate the original gradient and need to do it all over. I was wondering if there was a way to find the original one I made similar to recalling a selection when I push Command and then click on on the adjustment layer. 

 

Thanks as always.

Not directly, but you can apply a fill layer as a mask, apply a gradient to that which you can adjust at any time.

Set one end of the gradient line as solid colour, the other end (the one you want in colour)  transparent

 

The top handle here is transparent

Because the gradient is on a fill layer, it remains editable.
