After upgrading to Photoshop CS5, I find that the "Fit on Screen" command doesn't fit on the visible screen any more in Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar. Instead, the image is centered on the screen, leaving a large open space on the left side and putting the right side of the image well behind palettes docked to the right side of the screen.
I tried changing the Zoom Resizes Window setting, but it has no effect on this misbehavior.
The previous version I had of Photoshop did this correctly, fitting the image so that it would be entirely visible.
What is the fix?
This might be the same problem, but that thread has no solution to it at this time. After doing the steps described, the image is still positioned behind the panels whenever I type command-0 to fit it to screen.
Standard Screen Mode in Application Frame should do what you want. Go Window>Workspace>Reset Essentials and then go Window>Application Frame. Then you can Cmd+0 and the image will zoom in but stop at panel dock area.
However, if you jump to Full Screen Mode, image will slip under the panels... which makes sense considering how the Hand Tool moves the image around in Full Screen Mode.
Seems like there is a bunch of UI bugs or maybe just poor design and implementation to yet be fixed in CS5.
When using Command & Option & + to fill the screen it is bit annoying to have 40 pixel gap on the left side as all my pallets are on a second monitor. This behavior was in no prior version of PS so why was it implemented in CS5 or is it just a bug that hasn't gotten fixed yet.
