    hdr toning window menu too large

    capt marvy

      Hi all,

      when I click on the hdr toning menu it comes up too large, it obscures the image and I cannot move it around as the blue border at the top is not there...is there a way I can make that menu/window smaller...so that I can see the image and move it around...the sharpen image is quite large as well but there is a plus/minus widow which allows to see the image

          Are you on windows or mac?  Photoshop version?

           

          Is there space below the hdr toning dialog?

           

          If your on windows and have the taskbar at the top of the screen, is the top part of the dialog behind the taskbar?

            I am on windows xp pro....I am using ps cs5 extended...yes there is spacebelow  but the blue bar is not visible at the top...I cannot click on any part of the box to make it larger or smaller...it is the same size...my taskbar is hidden and not part of  the problem..the taskbar in on the bottom...sorry I did not give you this info in the beginning....I was wondering if the dialog boxes were adjustable in CS5..

            Hope this helps

              I'd start by resetting the photoshop preferences and see if that clears things up:

               

              Some of the dialogs in photoshop can be resized like the filter gallery or camera raw dialog (dragging on the bottom right corner of the dialog), but most can't.

               

               

              Restore all preferences to default settings  

               

               

                •     
                  Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings.

                   

                      

                  New Preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop.

                Nope...that did not do a thing....is there a preset reset in the preference section?

                  I do have a work around....I enlarge the image enough to make it larger than the dialog box...depress space bar and move mouse and that moves the image so I can make the adjustment, but box remains stationary. I prefer the the box to move and the image stationary

                    Out of curiosity, Capt., what's your display resolution set to?

                      Noel,

                      I thought about that too! My settting is 1280x720.....I went to 800x600 and up to 1280x1024 and it makes no differerce the box is in the same spot everytime. no change whats so ever...It was a great thought though, thanks for the input

                        The minimum system requirement is 768 pixels vertical resolution:

                         

                        http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/tech-specs.html

                         

                        I believe this must be the root of the problem.  I don't know what you saw when you "went to" 1280 x 1024, but your display at 1280 x 720 is simply too short to fit the entire dialog.

                         

                        I had heard that Adobe was supposed to detect short displays and squeeze some of the controls together in an alternate arrangement, but I'm not sure about that.  The Adobe folks will have to comment on this.

                          Noel,

                          thanks for looking up all of that data...everything is running great @ 1280x720 all windows are visible and mobile with the exceptin of hdr toning...I have tried all of the settings that ps says you are to have and there is no change. all windows were mobile visible at all setting except hdr.

                            Noel,

                            I even changed monitors...no go

                            went to an other pc which has cs5.1 that one was working correctly...I searched for the hdr toning folder and found it under presets, I copied that to this pc, took out that folder and replaced it with the folder from the other pc and guess what...same thing window is too large ...same thing as I had. I could reinstall cs5.1 but that is a lot of work and if it did not work that would chafe my backside.

                              Only other thing I can suggest is maybe doing a screen grab and posting the image here, on the chance that something you didn't mention will be shown, or that the image might spark someone's memory about what to do to fix it.

                                Believe it or not with all of my years on the computor I do not know how to operate prt scrn....My other printscreen program is not installed as I just finished building this pc...it is an old Dell Dimension 4500S...Any how I took a picture with my camera, edited it and now you got it.

                                  I hate to be pushy, but if you switch to a screen resolution greater than 1024 x 720, then close and restart Photoshop, then do the same operation, how does it look?

                                      The problem may be that you confirmed the operation with the pixel count too small, then when you run it at the higher screen pixel count it's starting off-screen because that's the last place it ran. 

                                       

                                      I'm thinking if you reset preferences with the larger pixel count active the dialog would end up on screen.

                                       

                                      I don't think you're ever going to be able to get it to work right with the screen set at 720 pixels though.

                                        Hi,

                                         

                                        I had this issue as well with a 1280x800 resolution and the only way to fix it was to change the resolution of the screen to 1280x768 - strange but true, couldn't handle 800 tall but could with 768 tall.

                                          Select the HDR filter window, click alt/spacebar, then choose Move, then use your mouse or the up and down buttons to move the window.  You should then be able to get at the HDR window's controls.

                                            In your screenshot the screen is to short to move the toning dialog and that's probably why resetting the preferences didn't work

                                            If you go a resolution of 1280 x 1024 then you can move the dialog by pressing Spacebar+Alt then M and use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the dialog down.

                                            It might take some doing for it to work, but it does work.

                                             

                                            On a screen resolution of 720 height there is not enough room to move the dialog but you could try the same and see.

                                             

                                             

                                            If your lucky after pressing the Alt+Spacebar you'll see a popup menu as below where you can choose the Move option.

                                            You can also close the curve part of the dialog or switch to another toning mode to make dialog shorter.
