I'm lost. Screenshot?
Hmm, the Tools panel should have a "gripper" icon along the left side, which would let you move it. I'll wager it's hidden behind the floating Project panel. This screenshot highlights several such grippers.
ShooterNZ's advice will fix this, but will also undo other customization of your workspace. If you move the floating Project panel, then you should find the Tool panel's gripper. Click and drag that "button" to move it where you like.
Your screenshot shows the gripper centered vertically on the Tools panel. I highlighted it for you.
Mark Mapes - I thought I could write in my own language and it was automatically translated - but it was not - sorry - but here in English.
I have deleted all in workspace but as you can see the tools are still in upper left corner - and the "handle" two small arrows are not in left side.
I have tried to as you can see to take all editing windows away and restart - but tools are still there
I have for years been using CS3 and lately CS5 - it worked ok - I could moove tools around like other windows - but now here in CS 6 - it does not work.
When I received the update for CS 6 - I remooved the old CS 5,5 - and reinstalled it and following made the update to CS 6
No worries about the language. Google Translate got me close enough.
At this point, since you have closed nearly all the panels, there's no harm in resetting the workspace: Windows>Workspace>Reset Current Workspace
Mark Mapes - thanks - I can see what you mean, but I can not "get in toutch with the orange line - sometimes the line is there somtimes it is not . I put a new screen dump - please note in the right hand top corner there is not any possibilityes for opening and change anything - normally you have a small meny . please look at the window i have put in the middle of the screen shot
If I understand correctly, you're raising two problems:
- None of the three panels in your screenshot has the orange outline that indicates the panel has focus. I don't have a good explanation for that. My only guess is that you have another panel open as a floating window, which is not visible in the screenshot and has focus.
- the small menu in the upper left corner is missing. I suspect you're referring to the "Options" window (highlighted in red in this screenshot). I'm not sure whether the Options window is shown by default in any of the predefined workspaces. If not, you can open it through the Windows menu. This screenshot also shows the Windows menu open and showing the command to reset the current workspace.
I hope that helps.
Time for me to go to bed...
Thanks for your effort - I have now trieed all possibilities (I think) I cannot obtain the menu in right upper corner . the place where you have plaved a red frame - the menu is missing - all other windows have the menu and a red frame around the whole window
I could remove the whole program once more and reinstall but I do not want to do that because it cut one of my possibilityes for later reinstall.
What I will do tomorrow is make a phone call to Adobe, I think they have a phone support.
I will come back with result.
By the way Do you know the name of vthe window - the one withou t menu in right top corner? It will make it more easy to explain the situation to the supporter.
And one last question - I can see you have been in the forum many times - Can I copy
I will...make a phone call to Adobe
Mark works for Adobe and is likely to be faaaaaaar more knowledgeable and helpful than phone support. (Hell, most anyone here is likely to be more helpful.) Your best option at this point is the Reset mentioned previously.
Widow>Workspace>Reset Current Workspace.
I cannot obtain the menu in right upper corner . the place where you have placed a red frame
It's no longer there in CC7, so you're not missing anything. It's the blue menu items on the left that will get things back to normal for you.
Something went wrong in number 11 - my question was is it possible to copy something written in a Word dokument right into this Forum - just here??
Jan Simon - good info - thank you - but I just feel I was "pushed into a corner" - Mark Mapes has been very helpfull but I feel that the I have used all possibilityes - and honestly I would prefer this forum insteath of phone - my experience with Adobe phone communication is very difficult - just to update to CS6 I spoke to people in Holland - India and Ireland, and quite a few times.
Back to the problem - I have tried this Windows - workspace - Reset Current workspace - but it does not help.
You mention CS7 is like what I have now - all right - but it seemes wrong to me that Tools is placed as a standard in top left corner - it means I can leave it there but I loose some space - all previous Premiere Pro you could easily put Tools somewhere in a small space left somewhere.
Mabye someone using CS6 or CS7 could have a look in their program and tell where tools i situated
it does not help.
What does it do? Post a screen shot of your layout immediately after performing the reset.
it seems wrong to me that Tools is placed as a standard in top left corner
It's not. That's one of the other workspaces. Go back to the Editing workspace, and reset that if need be.
I can move the Tools any where I want..and I can use my custom workspaces... or I can use the Workspaces provided by default.
The fact that Reset Current Workspace isn't fixing this makes me wonder if a custom workspace is selected. What's the name of the workspace with the dot next to it? If it's not one of the system presets, please try selecting one of them, such as "Editing."
Edited: Doh! After posting the above, I saw that Jim already made essentially the same point.
Thanks for answers - I put two screenshot in - first one as I aproxemately would like my work space to be - the next after I have used funktion: Window/Workspace/Delete Workspace - then after Delete Workspace is not highlighted any more - it means I can not delete any more.
Then you can see tools are at the top left corner you can see the tools and I can
Why are you deleting workspaces? We said to Reset them.
Jim - thank you - Yes I can see . I have tryed it before - several times - I have done it again - Resent Current Workspace - it changes notthing - are we in the situation that after all this trying tings again and again - and we are still no further longer - are something wrong in Win 7 ? or in the corporation between Win 7 and Premiere Pro? - are we close to moove Premiere Pro - reinstall Win 7 and reinstall Premiere pro 5,5 and install CS6?
Have you tried any of the default workspaces?. (Please confirm your answer)
The "mess" that I see in your screen grabs are created by the user ( you) and obviously you have moved the panes and frames around and lost control of them.
Use a Default EDIT wrkspace and delete any custom spaces you have created.
T\hen Read the USer Reference file(pdf) on Workspaces.
Thanks for your comment - Have you tried any af the default work spaces? What do you mean? - When you open Premiere pro a number of windows is created by pro eg. timeline - is that what you call default workspace.
In windows Workspace is not one compleete default workspace - If a complete default work space is placed somewhere else please tell me where.
If you mean the single windows placed under Windows Workspace - yes off course - I have used the programs for many years .
The "mess" I see in your screen grabs are created by user (you)......................................
Yes of course I have made them - The program is designed for use panels under Windows Workspace - but lost control . I do not understand what you mean
Use a Default Edit Workspace - What do you mean - please tell me how to made a Default Edit Workspace
Read the users Referance file (pdf) - please tell me the adress where it is
The screen grab in Mark Mapes post #10 show you the Default Workspaces in the Menu Bar.
eg WINDOW MENU> WORKSPACES> Audio, Color Correction, Editng.... etc..
They even have shortcut keys assigned,

please tell me how to made a Default Edit Workspace
It's not something you make, it's what comes with the program.
Go to Windows>Workspace> and select Editing. Then in that same menu select Reset Current Workspace.
