Some background: I making a plugin that consists of some photoshop scripts and a panel created in Adobe Configurator. Basically the panel has some buttons which executes some functions in the script. The plugin is described in greater detail and can be downloaded here http://lumens.se/tychpanel
The problem: To reproduce the problem, do the following:
Any ideas why this happens, and what to do about it? Note: this is somewhat of a cross-post started at http://www.ps-scripts.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4021&sid=d3c3d77dd128 984f8ee30252f0f4cf2a however, as I think it's more of a Configurator / Panel issue rather than a scripting issue I'm now asking here as well.

The steps I tried are:
1) click on your panel
2) switch to illustrator
3) switch back to photoshop
4) Open the dialog window by keyboard pressing Shift+Cmn+S
I can type the filename and I can dismiss the save as dialog windows Esc Key without any problem
I tried also other way and other Keys without any problem
If that are the right setps to test the problem, iI can say that all is ok with me
If so try to repair permission on your drive and then to refresh Photoshop preference file
( opening Photoshop pressing at the same time Cmnd+ Opt+Shift )
Yes, that is the correct steps indeed!
I'm not sure what you mean with "repair permission on your drive" but I tried the Cmd+Opt+Shift suggestion but it did not help
I've also tried exiting all other running applications but that didnt work out either... *pulls hair*
The funny thing is, if you click on the panel once again after losing focus Photoshop regains the focus until you switch application again..
To repair permission on mac os x:
close all your opened applications open disk utility select on the left column your hard drive and then on the right in the bottom click on " repair disk permission " close when it finish
Not so sure but the problem you have seems to be quite the same kind that happened to someone trying to switch among tools through the keyboard with some panels
As I suspected.
there are some thread here about keyboard issue
at the moment I don't remember which one but Im pretty sure there was a solution in some cases
try to take a look.
If I find something that can help you to solve the problem on your computer I will be glad to inform you
Compliment for your panel ,next days I will try it deeper
On the Configurator forum? I've gone through all five pages can't seem to find any of them. Found one one via Google in another forum though: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/638863?tstart=0
Not much help however.
Thanks a bunch for the help so far btw.
many and different problems around photoshop keyboard,
also when a panel is not involved, as you can see here
Have you updated to the latest osx version?
if not try 10.6.7 that could solve some problem with the keyboard
other suggestions could be :
- duplicate the default photoshop keyboard and create a new workspace
- try creating a new user account and test there
Tried all your suggestions. Updated to 10.6.7. New workspace. New user account. Deleted user pref directory. I even reinstalled PS.
Nothing seems to work. >_<
I really, really appreciate your effort though, mr Cromaline! Too bad mr PS is too stubborn. :-/
