What Photoshop fill for 18% grey card?

Re: Agree....

Xrite should have given the patch number to make it simple.

Agreed. X-Rite puts out a ton of information, but they don't make it easy to find, and some of it is not clear (to me at least).

Now for some further confusion. The new Passport 2 large 18% gray panel matches the patch 21, patch next to the white patch.

Hmm, I wonder whether they meant to say that the panel intended for white balancing matches patch 21? I have the original-type Passport, so I can't look at the new one. I can't imagine that anyone who has looked at many gray cards would think that the second patch on the Macbeth / CC neutral row is anywhere near 18% gray.
