Hi there, I have been a photoshop user for 20 years, but recently I have come across a problem that I have never seen before.
I am sure there will be an easy fix, but....
When I have an image open in photoshop as a floating window, the next image I open, opens behind the image that is already open. This used to be the opposite way around and the new image would be on-top or in front, as you would say... not hidden behind the image already open.
Then I can not click on the newly opened image, even though I can see the title bar of the image behind the front image. I then have to click on the front image title bar first, then click on the title bar of the one behind to bring that to the front.
I know it doesnt seem a major problem, but to me it is as annoying as the new 'Save As' not now having Jpeg in it, and having to click 'Save As A Copy' everytime instead. After twenty years of familiarity, I dont know why they mess with it!
Dan, that sounds inconvenient to me! I can't duplicate your issue. When I have an image open in a floating window, the next image I open appears in front of that image but docked as a second tab. Maybe check your file handling options or you may need a preferences reset. Have you tried that yet? Preferences reset info is here. Prior to performing a rollback, make sure to back-up your preferences.
Hmmm. I tested that just now and starting from Bridge, images open exactly the same way they do in Photoshop for me... with the second image on top and as a second tab to the first, all remaining as floating (undocked) images. So, I still am not sure what is causing this for you. What versions are you using and what is your OS? At least it's good to know that you aren't getting the problem when directly opening from Photoshop.
