As a web designer who still grieves for Fireworks, I really miss in Photoshop a way to switch between artboards as we used to do with States or Pages in FW. When I design a website, I create a layout for every major page (Home, Products, Contact, etc), and it's very important to easily jump from one to another.

I sugest at least a keyboard shortcut to switch artboards. Ideally, Adobe could let users choose whether they prefer all artboards visible in the same canvas (as it is today), or, instead, to make artboards as a pile of layers, just like Fireworks Pages and States.

Please, Adobe, I've never asked you for anything before 🙂

I'm not sure if this'll help, but you can stack your Artboards rather than tile them.  (With the Move Tool, click and drag the Artboard Title.)

Have you tried adding a custom keyboard shortcut for Fit Artboard on Screen?  I've found that to be pretty helpful.  It would be great to have something like "Always Fit Current Artboard on Screen".

I've also found the Navigator panel to be a little more helpful than the Hand Tool when working with Artboards when the view is set to Fit Artboard on Screen.

I just added a custom keyboard shortcut for Fit Artboard on Screen, it sure helps, thanks a lot 🙂 still, far from ideal.

I was never a fan of Navigator, even in Fireworks. I tested it in Photoshop aswell and.. meh.

If I stack my Artboards, I can only see the one in the top. There's no fast and easy way of bringing up the Artborards from bellow (or so I believe). So it doesn't help, but thanks again for the tips!
