    Caps Lock in Photoshop

      I'm putting this in the AE forum because the AE heads will know what i mean (sorry if this gets up someones nose). Is there any photoshop equivalent to after effects "caps lock" disable preview feature?

          No. Except for smart layers, PS rendering occurs whenever an effect is applied. Out of interest, why would you need to disable it?

            Basically The BGs for this project are HD and some are 1.5 GBs. I was looking for a way to just be able to open the PSD without actually previewing it and then be able to change the document size, delete layers etc... or maybe just solo a layer so I can crop without having to preview the entire file. Some of the files take 10 minutes to open and then if you make a change or even switch a layer off it takes ages to refresh. The BG artists went a bit doolally when they heard we'd be comping in at least 16 bit and MAYBE 32 bit so the files are ridiculously detailed and have a bazillion layers.

            Then of course the director wants a noise over everything which will obscure alot of this fine detail anyway!!?
