    Photoshop 11.0 Open Finder Window

    kerynm87085950

      The Photoshop 11.0 Open Finder Window keeps collapsing in the 'Name' field. As I use this a lot it really slows me down. How do I re-set the preferences so this doesn't happen? I also use Illustrator, InDesign and Quark, and it hasn't happened in those.

          Hi Keryn

           

          I'm a Windows user so can't offer much insight into what I suspect is related to your version of OSX.  It might be helpful to know what that version is?  Can you also describe in a bit more detail what is happening?  I am guessing that is the way the name field is truncating the file name so you can't read the whole name. Is that right?

          How do those fields look in the other applications you mention?  Are the other fields in the same order and the same size as in Photoshop?

          Have you expanded the window to show more of the fields?

          With Windows, double clicking the interface between fields auto expands them to the required width.  Have you tried that?

            What version of mac os x are you using?

             

            See if going to

             

            /Users/User Name/Library/Preferences

             

            and trashing the

             

            com.adobe.Photoshop.plist

             

             

            fixes the issue.

              Thanks for getting back to me Akash. Sorry I’ve taken so long to reply (work getting in the way).

              I’m currently using a Mac OS X 10.6.8.

              You seem to have grasped the problem. And it only happens in Photoshop (Illustrator, InDesign etc are fine).

               

              If you drag the window across you can see the name in full, and if you double click the interface it expands sufficiently. The problem is it doesn’t stay open. Every time you use it you have to drag or double click it open, which really slows down my work (I publish magazines and work with a lot of photos).

               

              This problem only started about a month ago. The window has stay open since I first installed CS4 many years ago. And it hasn’t affected the other CS4 programmes.

               

              I re-installed Photoshop but that made no difference.

               

              I’ve tried sourcing the internet, but a major hiccup is how do you word your request?

              If you call it a window you usually get tips on Widows.

              Or your request relates the word windows to actual photos.

              I’m guessing it’s something to do with preferences or settings, but when you type these nothing is relevant to this problem.

                Thanks for the reply Jeff.

                I’m using Mac OS X 10.6.8

                 

                I tried to find /Users/User Name/Library/Preferences with no luck.

                Does it apply to me (I’m using CS4)?

                  It's your User Library

                   

                  Try this:

                   

                  Click on your desktop and in the Go menu click on Go To Folder

                   

                  Then paste or type ~/Library/Preferences

                   

                  That should get you Library>Preferences and look for and delete the

                  com.adobe.Photoshop.plist

                    Guess what Jeff, I tried it and it worked!

                     

                    This is saving me so much time not having to stretch out the open window each time I open a file or save over one.

                     

                    Thanks so much for you help. The step-by-steps you gave made a difference too.
