P: CS6 - Tearing a tab into its own window makes it impossible to move. (Win, Task Bar)

Tearing a tab into its own window makes it impossible to move. (I don't use tabs because they're too inflexible.) If I try to move a document, it snaps to a totally different spot. If I move it multiple times, it slowly migrates across the screen until it is impossible to work on at all. Turning off the tab setting altogether does not help this problem. In fact, at this rate, doing so would make getting anything done impossible.

Secondarily, it would also be nice if every new document window did not appear in my toolbar, because then I have to alt+tab through potentially 10 open documents each time I switch to Photoshop. Plus, it's really cluttered.

Try moving your windows taskbar to the bottom of the desktop and see if that makes a difference.

Some co-workers noticed the same thing on windows 8 using cs6.

Well, that's the strangest thing. I'll see if we can repro internally. Thanks for the video.

Yep, moving the taskbar to the bottom of the screen fixes the problem. As a personal comment, I can't go back to a horizontal task bar for the same reason I'm excited about the new Photoshop: it's a killer productivity upgrade, so hopefully you can get this fixed.

First thing I noticed when I tried out my new toy today. I am sorry, but this is horrible, For now, I will continue to use Photoshop 12 - that can hardly be the desired result from all your hard work...

I use Windows 7 with the task bar docked to the left. Like Justin, I do not want to change the position of my task bar just for one app that misbehaves.

Hey all, a workaround for this is to set your taskbar to Auto-Hide

Rightclick taskbar
Properties
Auto-Hide the Taskbar

Thanks!

I'm having an identical issue which is making it very difficult to use Photoshop CS6. I also don't use tabbed windows because of their inability to drag and drop easily between various windows. I'm on a custom made intel i7 6 core PC and Windows 7 64bit. Utilizing a GTX670 video card, system is only a few days old, so all drivers are up to date and current.

Sorry, that workaround is not acceptable to me. Do you have any estimate of the date when a fix for this bug in Photoshop CS6 will be made available to your customers?

At this point, your other option is to move the taskbar away from the Leftside of the screen, or the top of the screen while using Photoshop with floating image windows.

I do not have information as to upcoming fix ETA.

Photoshop CS6, Window bug
when you have hopened a photo and you try to change it's position on the screen, it jumps back. (you cannot change the position of the photo - at least not where you want to have it)

Workaround: you can resize the window from the borders.
(issue seems to appear only when windows task bar is left or top)

(Soo far only tested with the Windows version, Win7/32bit)

Hi Scott,

No ETA on a fix at this time, but the workaround for now is the best option. Hopefully that'll work for you in the meantime.

With the task bar located vertically on the left side of the screen and only on the left side of the screen does this bug occur.

Bring a new image into PS and it attaches itself to the top bar as it should. If you pull that image off the top bar and move it to another part of the screen it will stick as it should, but any subsequent attempts to move it are greeted with the window snapping back to the position it was in. Repeated tries push the image window further off the screen.

Again this happens only with the task bar located vertically on the left side of the screen. The fix at this point is of course to relocate the Taskbar.

good luck
Steve

I'm using windows 7 (64bit) with taskbar horisontal, but on top.
I'm using mac-like bar in bottom and am not intended to move windows taskbar to the bottom. CS5 was absolutely ok.

can't work now, moving back to CS5 until this bug will be fixed.

Typical official response -- auto hide the task bar. Hmmm. Maybe I want to see the task bar, and instead, I want you to fix it so Photoshop doesn't clutter up my task bar with unnecessary duplicate representations of itself.

This comment was posted 3 months ago and is still a valid workaround if you have not installed the 13.0.1 update, but is unnecessary now.
