Hey!

 

Hope I can describe my Photoshop issue in English.

 

On my last Macbook Pro 2016 13" and on my new one 2019 15" I have this issue most of the time with photoshop - I think not at all with the other software of the Adobe Creative Cloud.

 

Issue:

As you can see in the screenshot my Photoshop window moves out of the viewport/display of my Macbook (to the left). This happens quite often after I am working for some time with Photoshop and switching between Photoshop and a browser, other CC software… It is not only that I have to move it back to the center of the window in order to see everything.

The second part of the issue are the openend tabs in Photoshop: they suddenly do not react anymore, when I click on them. The workaround I use since months is to click on the right side of the window an drag it a little bit smaller or bigger. This does actually activate the chosen tab and I can continue working.

 

As you can imagine this is a pain in the a… even though I can work with it. But after I got my new Macbook this year I thought the issue gets solved automatically. I do not now any other CC user, who has the same problem.

 

I do appreciate any information or help to get rid off this.

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Kind regards

 

Flo

Update:

 

- I had the same issue with Adobe Illustrator now once as well

- I tried to solve the problem by turning off the Settings > Mission Control > Group Windows by Application, but I did not work (https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/photoshop-window-on-mac-keeps-moving-off-screen/td-p/681537...)

- I have read that the different spaces (multiple desktops) I use on my Mac might be the reason for the interference (see screenshot)

- because I already did a reinstall of the CC products three months ago, I do not think this can solve the issue, but if there are no other suggestions I might just go for it.

 

Thank you for your help in advance!

Issue #1
Have a look at the Overscroll option within the Tools tab of the Photoshop preferences.

 

Issue #2
If default Photoshop behaviour ever starts to change, a good solution is often to reset the preferences.

Thank you Michael!

 

I did reset the preferences and turned on the Overscroll option.

 

I will check if it worked or not and tell you what happened.

so did that work? My artboard and tools is off my monitor on my MacBook Pro so I can't use it.

Hi!

 

Sorry to hear.

 

I am not totaly sure what fixed the issue in the end for me.

Definetly try what Michael mentioned.

Another good advice was to connect my Mac to an external screen and rearrange everything to your main screen (Mac). From one point it did start to work properly for me.

 

Good luck!
