Hi. This is a small issue compared with other things, but it's starting to piss me off now. I'm working in Mac OS, so I don't know if it's the same in Windows. I work on both platforms, but my preference is for Mac which I use at home, so apologies to Windows users.
Okay. I go to Save As in Photoshop. Why is the file name window so small? I always have to click on the file name and scroll to the end. Why can't the file name window automatically expand to the length of the file name? Simple question. Too many clicks already!
This appears to be a problem with Apple macOS, not Photoshop.
The proof? If you try all the usual Mac-standard ways to expand a Save As dialog box, in non-Adobe applications and in applications that Apple includes with the Mac, none of those make the filename field wider. So the problem is with macOS itself. Shown below is what I tried in Apple Preview, and the same thing also happens in Apple Safari. I can make the dialog box wider, but the filename field doesn’t change. So it’s the way Apple is doing things.
You might already know this, but a shortcut to going to the end of the filename is to press the down arrow key.
