Out of the blue, I can't go fullscreen on Photoshop. I have the latest Photoshop CC, MacBook Pro, High Sierra, the green expand button on the left upper side of the window has the "+" instead of the fullscreen button. Anyone has the same problem? Gone, poof!! It works in other apps (Lightroom included)
Maximising the window is not supported on Photoshop CC 2017 release under the new Mission Control in High Sierra. As of versions Lightroom CC (2015), this feature is supported.
However, if you wish to go full screen mode, you can do so by selecting the "Full Screen Mode With Menu Bar" option;
I had the ability to do that earlier yesterday, to use the little green button with the two arrows. I didn't change anything in my system, it just changed to the + out of nowhere.
But more important look what happens when I go to full screen mode (A bar where the dock was stays there, and adobe won't let me expand the window beyond that. I know it's kinda hard to see, my wallpaper is a bit dark.)
I know I can hide the toolbar (in all screens), but I don't want to do that. Fullscreen mode works fine in Chrome, Lightroom and all other apps (the dock disappears, and windows go all the way to the edge of the screen)
That explains it. My dock is on "auto-hide."
This is unacceptable, I pay monthly for a program that doesn't support the mac way of moving fullscreen apps to spaces.
Yet Lightroom offers this functionality. WHAT IS GOING ON!
Adobe is incompetent. Since the new leadership, they are only interested in cashing in on monopoly.
What we need is a viable competitor to PS so we can dump it.
Photoshop does not have the green Full-screen double-headed arrow button on Photoshop or Bridge in either my Sierra or High Sierra laptops. Just the Green +
That sounds normal. Pressing F on your keyboard will get your image into Fullscreen.
Simply auto hide the dock using command+option+D
It’s not the point. Adobe needs to support the native full screen mode that nearly all other professional software on the Mac does. It’s about more than the dock. With the dues I’ve paid for CC they could hire a team to sort this problem out, they just don’t.
Did this ever get resolved? It really slows down workflow to not be able to make this its own desktop
Not sure if you found a fix already, but what I do is add a second desktop and put photoshop on that.
You just open your window viewer (3 finger up-swipe on the trackpad) and click the '+' in the top right. It should make a 'desktop 2'. Then, with photoshop open, just drag the PS window into the desktop 2 preview. Now you can Control + right/left arrow onto photoshop as if it were in native fullscreen mode.
Hope I helped someone 🙂
This literally does nothing. The dock is still there even on the second desktop. The only way to go fullscreen is to hide the dock.
Thanks this work-around helped my work flow.
This is exactly what i needed! So that I can sweep between programs without using the top left bar. THANK YOU!
This saved a lot of my problem! What do you do with your "Windows"? I have mine linked together and showing on another monitor, and its a mission that they disappear all time and end up on top of other apps that I open.
Look through your Spaces preferences. I have a half-dozen Spaces and keep each app in its own Space. Photoshop is a bit buggy and likes to switch to other Spaces, I haven't found a fix for this.
