Since I purchased CS5, I've found that double clicking, or dragging to the Ps (or Ai) icon in the dock will only open the program, but not the file. I then have to go back and double click the file again to bring it up. I've looked in preferences but cannot find a way to resolve this. A friend who also has CS5 does not have this problem.
By the way. I didn't see an update for Illustrator. I have the same problem in Illustrator. If Illustrator is not open, and I click on an Illustrator file, it opens Illustrator, but not the file I clicked on. I then have to double click the file a second time to open it! -n
Which version of Illustrator are you using?
Are you using any third party plug-ins in Photoshop & Illustrator?
Are you using any third party scripting addition plug-ins (what is in the folder: /Library/ScriptingAdditions)
Have you updated your OS lately?
Are you on a Mac or a PC?
That behavior usually is sign of a file vital for Photoshop (and some other Adpobe apps too) missing.
I've published an old Adobe technote about that here http://www.ninisworld.com/thecorner/tutorials/photoshopopen.html including also the file needed on a Mac.
If you are on a PC I have no solution to suggest.
I'm on Illustrator 15.01. I am not using any third party scripting. I am using Suitcase Fusion 3 for font management and I don't have it automatically start up. Suitcase has caused me issues in the past. This is a brand new Mac pro so I haven't re-installed a new operating system.
Thanks for replying, Neil.
