I have a small problem with Photoshop CC. If I choose under "Windows" -> "Workspace" -> "Lock Workspace" the Workspace is not locked. Does anybody have the same problem or a solution? Thanks

I find on Windows with Lock Worksace check for the most part Photoshop palettes locations seem toe be locked if the worspace was set up with all photoshop palettes on the display Photoshop main window is on. All I can change are Palettes tab order when Palettes share a window.  If theWorspace is spread across displays. Only the palettes  on the displaye with Photoshop's main windows seem to be locked.

There are Problems when you create work spaces that you have Photoshop Palettes distribute on more than a single displays  Lock Workspace see to only lock Palettes on one display,  Pallets on the other display(s) are not locked. Those on the other Display(s) can be moved and resized moved to the  display with the locked palettes and still not be locked. 

 

I  use Windows Photoshop does not always work the same way on PC and Mac.   PC and Mac operating system have different UI features.

For me, Lock Workspace only works with default workspaces like Essentials.  For my main custom workspace, it has no effect at all.   However I find a better solution is make actions that set, and reset, particular workspaces, and trigger them with Function keys.  This allows you the flexibility of placing panels where you need them, and quicklt tidying things up when you are done.

I am having the same problem and find F9 not the solution.

Should be able to lock workspace since the feature is there.

My F9 Actions set my photoshop Workspace to the one I normally use  in case I may have switched workspace. It also reset the Workspace in case I may have moved palettes. Also it make sure Zoom Tool is set to its default, selects the move tool, insure Photoshop preference Zoom resize window is set.

 

What does you F9 action look like. Here is mine.

If you have a single display Lock workspace should work but that does not prevent  action, scripts from changing workspace, changing preferences, tool settings, etc..  There is more then Workspace   when it come to Photoshop UI.  I find I need quick rest

Thanks, I will give it a try (use 3 different custom settings for workspaces...and  especially for different open windows).. still I think Adobe should fix the problem, so will report the error in Photoshop.

It best to work around Photoshop issues Adobe does not fix all issues. Don't wait for a fix solve the problem for yourself.

You have a point, Adobe says my Graphic Card Geforce GTX 750 is not supported in the newest version of Photoshop. Grrrrrrrrr. Thanks again for your patience.
