Drawing a gradient shape layer with the rectangle tool causes the gradient angle to be reset to 1 every time you change it in the gradient fill properties. Both the rounded rectangle and the regular rectangle live shapes are affected.

If one converts the live shape into a regular path the issue goes away, but so does the corner editing features. This bug has been present for over a year and is still not adressed.

Seems I spoke too soon :/ The error still persists, but it resets when the layer is reselected.

Hi Marcus, I can't seem to reproduce the problem. I can't quite make out all the steps from the video because I can't see what tool options you have set.

Can you provide written steps of how to reproduce the issue?

Also, it looks like you're on Windows 10. Is that correct?

Never mind. Seems to be a Windows only issue. I've logged a bug with the eng team. Thanks!

I'm on OS X 10.10.5 and having the same issue. I installed the latest update which started causing this problem so rolled back to the previous version (2015.0.0 20150529.r.88 x64) but it seems the problem has carried over. Instead of resetting to 1 mine resets to 0.
