This just started happening, but I can't get my palettes to fly out anymore. They are all there (this is not a tab key issue), but no matter what I do they won't fly out/expand and it's completely stopped my work. I've had this happen before, but never ever to the point where nothing seems to be fixing it. 

 

As I was writing this I tried one last thing which worked; I turned the application frame back ON. I generally hate the application frame and it's one of the first things I disable when adjusting my workspace, but there you go. So if anyone has any ideas how I can go back to turning the application frame off, that would be sweet. 

 

Before I came here I tried uninstalling/reinstalling (with lots of restarts in between) and searching and destroying any errant cache files from the library that might have been lurking after uninstalling.

Have you tried moving the panels away from the edge of your screen?

I've seen it where the user had them right up to the edge and they were actually opening as if there was a second screen beyond the monitor edge.

Hey Kevin, I'm not sure if they are pushing out the wrong direction, but you're right I do keep them docked to the side.  pulling them away from the side of the screen did work. I had hoped pulling them off and putting them back would straighten it out, but sadly they go back to their bad behavior once relocked to the side. I guess this will do as a workaround until the next update. Thanks for the insight!
