Photoshop can't be exited when Neural Filters is active

When I try to press the "X" button at the top-right, the Windows alert sound plays. I have to exit out of the Neural Filter menu before I can quit.

 

I would expect to either be able to quit immediately, or, if the photo has been edited, given a dialog box asking me if I want to save before exiting.

 

Tested on the Windows 10 version, 64-bit. Photoshop version 22.0.0.

I believe that is the case with many of the other dialog boxes for other Photoshop features: you need to close the dialog before quitting Photoshop.

Thanks for your response.

 

I'm a Photoshop beginner, so I typically think of dialog boxes as appearing over the main UI -- not integrated with it. If there's an additional window on top of the UI, it makes sense that I can't exit out. If it is part of the pre-existing window, it feels confusing that I can't.

Yea, you have to close all dialog boxes, no matter the size, to exit Photoshop.

Yeah. It wasn't the size of the Neural Filters panel that confused me, it was its identity as a dialog box.

 

I think I understand why it would be classified as one; it has "OK" and "Cancel" buttons, after all. Most programs I use don't allow dialog boxes to be docked to the main UI. I think it initially confused me because I'm not used to it; I subconsciously classified that "floating" attribute to be important toward a dialog box.

 

Thanks for your responses; it cleared things up for me.

It’s not your fault. I’ve used Photoshop a long time and this still catches me out sometimes, because you’re right…they don’t look like dialog boxes, but they are. I think Adobe calls them “taskspaces” but they are very visually similar to a normal workspace, right down to having tool and panel stacks on the sides. Select and Mask, Blur Gallery, Content-Aware Fill, and some other filters have this type of user experience.

 

If you can’t get out of Photoshop, or tools and commands are mysteriously unavailable, get into the habit of looking to see if there are Cancel/OK buttons along the top or bottom (unfortunately, the button placement is not consistent). If the buttons are there, you’re in a modal taskspace and can’t get to the rest of Photoshop until you exit the mode.

Yeah, I'll be sure to keep an eye out.

 

It's not particularly intuitive. I've really been liking Adobe's UIs, so it's strange that they made that design choice to classify them as dialog boxes or "taskspaces"
