Photoshop CS5 Distort > Filter > Shear has NO default button. The only buttons are OK and CANCEL. Any clues how to resolve this?

How down the Option (Mac) or Alt (Win) key and the Cancel button will change to the Reset to reset the settings to their default.

Actually it won't reset to the default. It will reset to the last value used.

Is there a way to reset it to factory defaults?
I know a way to reset all Photoshop's settings to default. But what If I want to reset a single filter?

Hold down the 'Command' (macOS) or Ctrl (Win) key to get the default button to show

Take Unsharp Mask for instance.
When holding `Alt` you can reset value to the last used one.
Holding `Control` won't do anything.

There's a bit of long term consistency issues between filters and this behavior. (different filters were created at different times over the past 30 years). I've asked engineering to see if it's possible to make these more consistent. Thanks.

Great -- does this appear anywhere in the manual? I couldn't find it.
