Photoshop: Automatically Save New Custom Styles As .asl Files in Presets/Styles Folder

As has been requested by various PS users over the years, what I would really like to see is when we create a new style, it is automatically saved as an .asl file in the Presets/Styles folder, and not just in a temporary memory space where it may be lost through a version upgrade, or due to some other unforeseen reason.It is rather frustrating and aggravating — and a waste of one’s time — to create a pile of new custom styles, just to have them zapped out of existence due to a PS update, or due to some other kind of unforeseen technical issue.Like myself, there are many PS users who are not aware of the fact that if they don’t manually save their custom styles, they could be lost. Like myself, they assume that when one creates a new style, it is automatically and permanently saved somewhere in Photoshop’s folder hierarchy. As I learned through experience, apparently, this is not the case.As I said, in my view, this should be an automated process. We shouldn’t have to manually navigate to a particular folder in the “Save as ...” window, and then save the style. The truth is, many of us get so caught up in our work in Photoshop, that the last thing on our minds is to remember to save the new styles we just created.In fact, maybe PS can automatically create a new subfolder in Presets/Styles called “Custom Styles” where it will save all of our new styles.I hope this feature request gains traction this time around.

Also check layer styles in Libraries panel.

Yes, I am aware of the "Layer Styles" pane in Libraries/My Library. However, from what I can tell, it does not save every single new style that I create. I could be wrong about this, because I haven't created a new style in a while. I will have to experiment with it when I have time, in order to determine if it is actually saving all of them or not.

Oui, et pas seulement pour les styles, pour tous les paramètres customisables, actuellement c'est quand même étrange qu'il faille le faire sois-même via le menu Edition / paramètres prédéfinis / Exporter..... Ou alors quand on ferme PS, qu'un dialogue nous demande si on souhaite les enregistrer. ou alors qu'on puisse les retrouver facilement dans des backups avec des chemins d'accès documentés !

Yes, and not only for styles, for all customisables parameters, nowadays it is really strange that it is necessary to make it be the same via the menu Edition / predefined parameters / Export..... Where then when they close PS, for which a dialogue asks us if they like to record them. or while they can find them easily in backups with ways of researched accesses!
