No longer view 'print size' in CS6

Apr 5, 2013 4:52 AM

HI,

 

Whenever I run 'updates' for Photoshop CS6 the 'view' > 'print size' option disappears & has been replaced with 100% which is not the same thing! I am a designer & need to view 'actual scale' on screen while working & 100% is much, much bigger than this. I have tried playing with the screen pixel ratio & modes as I am on a retina 13" macbook pro but this doesn't make what I see 'real size' on 100% mode either. Can anypme make any suggestions as obviously I want to benefit from the other functions that the updates provide without this function being disabled. Each time I try running the updates, the same thing happens & I have to reinstall Photoshop from my original CD (therefore loosing all my saved brushes & patterns which is annoying). Any suggestions let me know, thanks

    Here is Adobe's response...

    The other option is use a Windows machine as that option has not been removed.

    Any idea why this was removed? It was in CS6 but disappeared 'upgrading' to CC.

    CC has not been released yet.   

     

    The feature was removed in CS6, but apparently it's back in CC (Photoshop 14.x) which will be released on June 17.

    "CC has not been released yet"!?

     

    I'm confused. I have been subscribing to Creative Cloud (CC) since November so I am not sure what you mean by this. I downloaded and installed Photoshop CS6 on a new Mac in January from Creative Cloud (CC). I am also using Photoshop CS6 at work (in education). It is the original 'standalone' installation and has the View > Print Size option. My PS CS6 (CC) does not. It will be good to see it return in what I thought was an update to Creative Cloud as it a useful way to demonstrate the importance of setting preferences (Units and Rulers).

    Yes, you are confused. That's what I am trying to explain to you.    You do NOT have PhotoshopCC.  You have a subscription to Photoshop CS6, which resides on the cloud, but it is not called Photoshop CC yet.  What you have is Photoshop 13.x through a cloud subscription and it is called Photoshop CS6.

    On June 17, it will automatically upgrade and morph into Photoshop CC, a.k.a. Photoshop 14.x, and it will indeed have the "Print Size" button, plus the application will have a new icon and splash screen somewhat along these lines (going out on a limb now, as I have no confirmation of the final design):

    Then it must be CS5 (Photoshop 12.x).  Check it out at your workplace.  The Print Size button is absent in CS6 (Photoshop 13.x).  It will be back in CC (Photoshop 14.x) on june 17.

     

    I hope we can start referring to Photoshop versions again by digits (numbers) and do away with this CS and CC cr@p.  Adobe has created enough confusion already.

    Anything's possible, but I have a feeling it might be a more subtle change...

    I won't spill all the beans just yet, but note the theme of the Creative Cloud graphic....

    By the way, the View - Print Size option went away DURING Photoshop CS6's reign.  It happened simultaneously with the introduction of Retina display support.

     

    13.0.0 has it

    13.0.1 has it

    13.0.2+ does NOT have it

    13.1.0+ does NOT have it

    14.0 will have it again, as station_two has said, though there will be no button for it in the Zoom Tool options bar.

     

    -Noel

    The "more subtly changed" icons you show are a relief from the gaudy ones someone provided me.  Thanks!

    It's gone in the latest version of Photoshop CC.

    No, Print size is there in Photoshop CC.

     

    View -> Fit on Screen, 100%, 200%, Print Size
