Ever since upgrading to CC (from CS) Photoshop does not retain tool settings between restarts. For instance, if I am using the Polygonal Lasso tool, after quitting and restarting the regular Lasso Tool (which I never use) is active instead. It seems to go back to defaults every time.

Does this happen after you select the tool with a keyboard shortcut "L"? If so, it's a known issue that will be resolved with an upcoming update.

Yeah, that's when I discover it anyway. Good to know the fix is on the way because it's really annoying. Also find that the cursor preferences aren't consistently remembered -- have had to reset that preference several times so far.

Happens to me with or without shortcut. Glad it's a known issue and being worked on.
