I have PSE11 and purchased Paint the Moon effects. How can I view both the Layers panel and the Effects panel at the same time? Was this an option in older versions of PSE that are used in the Paint the Moon tutorials?
At the very bottom right of the editor window click the little arrow to the right of the More button and choose Custom Workspace. Then your panels will behave the way they did in earlier versions--you can drag them out of the bin, see more than one, remove panels from The Clump, etc.
