I can find no add button there is a new button to add a new gradient to an existing set this should be so easy but yet I can find no way to do it.

There is a save button but if you try to save it, it asked you to choose a new name and creates a new set of gradients i.e. all the existing gradients in the set plus your new one and every time you want to save a new gradient you have to save a whole load of grandaunts that exist already.

You can add your new gradient call it new give it a name and it appears there is the swatches but the moment you switch gradients its gone.

Please Adobe lets just have an add button it would make life so much simpler.
P.S. you can still keep your Save button for people who what to save the same thing again and again.

OK, then your description doesn't make sense.

You already can add a new gradient to the current gradient presets, everywhere that gradients are used in Photoshop.
And you can save all of the current presets as a file, or save selected presets from the preset manager.
And switching gradient presets doesn't remove the preset you just added to the preset list.

Sorry I am not explaining myself very well here. What I am trying to get across is the wish to add one of my presents to one of your existing lists without creating a list of my own. If you can do that in Photoshop CC on an iMac please let me know how.
