I've been using Photoshop CS5 for a long time now. That last time I used it was maybe Monday at the most. Today, when I opened it up, I found that my "Open Recent" menu was grayed out, because it was empty. So I find the file I'm working on and open it, and it appears that my settings are competely different now. The tools were all set to unusual amounts(maybe default settings). I don't use plugins, but my brushes were all still there.
This is all fine, what's bothering me is that when I used the Hand tool and pan through the image, after I release, it keeps sliding for a bit. I can barely flick the image and it flies all the way off screen. I've tried searching the internet for a way to change this but for the life of me I have no idea what this feature would be called.
How do I turn this off? It's making it really difficult to get where I want to go.
Hello! go to preferences>General and uncheck "enable flick panning"
Thank you! I love you!
Glad it helped.
As for your other issue, set all your settings as you want, and once it is done, save your Preference file to another folder, outside of the Photoshop one, and you would be able to restore it, in case it disappears. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/828/cpsid_82893.html
