    Layers & Layer comps disappear in palette but I can bring them back. Is this a bug or...

      a preference setting?

       

      A lot of times I'll be working on multiple .psd files and as I'm moving between files I'll notice that all the layers & layer comps will disappear from their palette (see image)

      I can bring them back by doing something like clicking on the text tool and then clicking on a text item on the stage. It's annoying because it takes a couple of clicks for the palette(s) to redisplay.

       

      Is this a bug or is there a setting in preferences that can control this?

       

      Thanks in advance for your replies,

      Zak.

          I can’t remember having encountered that behaviour, but I wonder if switching screen modes (hitting the key F three times) might help.

          And you may want to consider providing some information about your set up …

           

          Boilerplate-text:

          Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)?

          Does turning off OpenGL in the Performance Preferences and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue?
