In CS5, the options bar stayed above my toolbar and pallettes, so that my second monitor was free of all tools. Just the image.
But with CS6, it seems the options bar has been moved to the top of my image monitor.
Is there a way to force the options bar back above the tools on my other monitor?
You can grab and move the Options bar by clicking on the left end of it. Put it where you want, and use Window > Workspace > New Workspace and save it wit a meaningful name. Chose another Workspace, and then reset it, to go back to standard layout
Excellent! So glad I asked.
That drag spot is a little subtle, but of course it worked once I saw it.
