I just switched over to a new mac book pro with snow leopard (version .7 I think). When working in Photoshop CS3 Extended, I can't seem to keep more than one file/photo open at a time. I have one open, then I try to open a second one and the one that had been open just closes. Can't find it minimized on the dock or anything - it just closes. This is craziness for photoshop.
Anyone else have this issue? What is the fix?
Thank you soooo much for your answer - I didn't notice any tabs though. Where are they? I'm new to cs3 - the last photoshop I used was 7. and I'm new to snow leopard. Docs stayed open until I minimized them and then they landed in the dock in PHotoshop 7.
I ended up calling Apple support yesterday and they told me to press the two wings at the sides of the mouse down at the same time and that put the files in tabbed mode.
Although, I'm still wondering how would someone get two docs to stay open separately, not in tabbed mode, say, next to each other, so that I can work on them side by side?
It is not possible to see two open documents side by side while you're in Tabbed Mode (duh!). You need to
That's what guru Chris Cox has been trying to tell you from the very beginning (post #1).
Photoshop menu > Preferences > Interface > Panels & Documents > Open Documents as Tabs
You really should read the User Guide. Download the ENTIRE HELP file as a PDF from the Adobe Help site and study it carefully.

With all the respect I could muster, I tried giving you as much positive information as I though you would need to solve your problem and to encourage you to read the documentation.
What you call "negative attitude" was mere exasperation at the way you were posting, first giving incorrect and incomplete information about your setup, and then showing a total lack of knowledge of the most basic concepts.
Please read this FAQ for advice on how to ask your questions correctly for quicker and better answers:
One more thing, make sure you are NOT using the Application Frame, a workaround designed to accommodate recent PC-to-Mac converts, until you have a full grasp of the different screen modes:

I feel bad for you - you get exasperated so easily. Are you unhappy? No matter how smart you think you are and how dumb you think someone else is - you still don't have the right to talk down to them - ever.
And for the record, I did follow Chris's advice; my computer was already in Standard View; and I liked the function of Tabbed viewing when I was in it. I had simply posed a second question, which was, if I decide I need to have the pictures open at the same time, how can I make that happen - because - THE ORIGINAL ISSUE WAS THAT I WAS IN STANDARD VIEW, TABBED WAS NOT CHECKED, AND I COULD NOT GET MORE THAN ONE PICTURE TO STAY OPEN AT A TIME. In another forum someone who had advice without the sarcasim advised me that it is a snow leopard bug.
Make yourself and everyone around you happier and drop the attitude dude
