CS5 with OpenGL : Is there a way to disable the "inertia" when moving the window ?

Following a hardware change, photoshop automatically re-enabled a feature I had deactivated, the OpenGL acceleration.


I gave up on it 18 months ago because of one thing that incredibly irritated me, the crazy "inertia" when we moved elements.


Let's say you have an open document. The image is too large for your photoshop window, you only see a part of it.

So, you keep the Space key held, and you drag and drop with your left mouse click.

Without openGL acceleration : the moving ends as soon as you release your mouse.

With openGL acceleration : the moving gradually slows down until it comes to an end, meaning you have zero control over your work window.


And, well, that's enough of a bother for me to give up on OpenGL acceleration.


Please, would you know if there's a way to get rid of this feature ? I searched everywhere I could, I think I tried every one of photoshop's options, but to no avail, sadly


Thank you very much if you can help


Kind regards,
