simple but drastic question...resizing windows

Feb 22, 2013 10:34 PM

I normally work with a Macbook connected to a 23" Cine display. Pulled the Macbook off the display, opened Photoshop, and the bottom of all the action panels (actions, layers, channels, etc...) are below the lower edge of the screen and there appears to be no way to recover them.

 

The program is essentially useless until I can get connected to a big display, simply to click on the bottom of these panels.

 

What's the secret to resizing these?

    What happens if you choose a different workspace via the little box at the upper-right?

    when working with multiple monitors on Mac there is also an option in your display preferences to 'collect' your windows that have wandered away.

    It's in your Mac display prefs not the Photoshop prefs.

    You could rearrange everything for best use on the small display, and save your own named workspace (e.g., MB Small) and arrange everything for best use on the large display and save that as a different named workspace.  Then it won't be too hard to select one or the other.

    This is in the System Preferences of the Mac in OSX Snow Leopard and above (perhaps previous versions as well)
