Do you mean you want the icons to scroll along with the "Basic", "Tone Curve", etc. panels?
If so, in which version of LR did you see it this functionality?
I've tried it on my machine - the icons always stay visible but the expanded adjustment sliders do scroll with the Basic panel appearing to be attached to the local adjustments panel.
Sorry if I misunderstood your question.
I would want the expanded adjustment sliders to scroll with the Basic panels. Mine is always on top and does not scroll with the other default panels.
I am on lightroom 5.
It appears your screen resolution is too small to use Lightroom. Minimum requirements are 1024x768. Your screen shot indicates what you are seeing is about 540 pixels tall. What kind of computer is this and what do you have you screen resolution set at.
The screenshot was taken from the Adobe website. My actual resolution is much higher as I am using a retina Macbook Pro 15". Regardless, I believe that the setting I am after is provided within lightroom as it is like I wanted in other machines.
It took me quite a while to figure out what you meant. I think I get it now. But just to make sure....
When you click on the crop tool, or the adjustment brush, or any of the tools between the two, a new panel pops up above the Basic panel.
Rather than have them do that, you would like to be able to pin them to the scrolling panels. So, in essence, you would have six more panels.
I don't believe that there is any way to do that, so a Feature Request would be in order at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
They ask for the reasons you want this feature. I would love to hear why you want it. I can't think of a reason, but I am always interested in what other workflows there are out there. If you have a really good reason, maybe we would all be willing to submit one. There is some power in numbers.
It seems to depend on the actual size of the Lightroom window. Just messing around with both LRCC and LR5 on my MBP 15" retina, with a 1920 x 1200 external monitor, and both Lightroom versions will happily scroll the Adjustments panel as well as the others, but only if the size (i.e. height) of the Lightroom window is below a certain level. So on the retina screen, when the display is set to "Best for Retina", the adjustments panel scrolls with the others. But if I change to the native 2880 screen resolution, and expand the LR window to fit, then the adjustments panel does not scroll.
Similarly if I move LR to the external monitor, same thing, i.e. adjustments panel does NOT scroll when the LR window in maximised, but it does scroll when I lower the height of the LR window (seems to be round about the 1600 pixel mark)
It's the same using LR5, and the same on the Windows platform. I suspect it's somehow based on the height of the adjustments panel in relation to the overall height of the LR window, i.e. the adjustments panel does not scroll when there's sufficient overall space in the right-hand panel to allow sight of the one or more of the other tools below.
Sun of a gun. Is that what deanmadoo is asking about?
I always run Lightroom full screen on my 1920X1200 monitor, so I never noticed if I made the window smaller that it would scroll.
I set mine to Solo anyway, so it would possibly never be a problem for me even on a slightly smaller screen.
Yes!!. That is exactly what I am asking. I just tried to reduce the height of the lightroom window slightly (originally it was the fullscreen) and Bam!! it scrolls with the other panels. However, is there a way to have it scroll like this permanently? It is kind of annoying having the lightroom window slightly smaller than my screen, with a gap at the top.
There isn't a setting to make the scrolling permanent, but you might play around with the size of the Filmstrip, i.e. making it bigger reduces the pixel height of the right-hand panel, which may trigger the full scrolling.
But why would you want it to scroll? I imagine that if you have a good reason it should not be that hard for Adobe to do, I just can't think of a reason. It seems to me that when I have a tool selected, the last thing I would want is to have it scroll away. What am I missing?
