My actions aren't backed up as an action file, they were just sitting comfortably in my CS5..
I have installed the CS6 beta and it has taken over CS5, I am now unable to open anything in Photoshop CS5 as it goes directly into CS6.
I have lost my actions and I want them back, as well as my other settings. How do I get these back?
ALSO, the magnification zoom drop down box that was at the top of CS5 (25%, 50%, 100%, 200%) does no longer exist. Is there a way to get this back? I use to use this frequently!
I am on Windows 7 64-bit
The actions and all your other preferences are still there in CS5.
If you want them in CS6, you'll have to save them and copy the files, or use the migration script.
And "taken over" - do you mean that double clicking on a file opens CS6 instead of CS5? That's normal for MacOS and Windows - the last one installed wins for double clicking.
As in I can't open CS5 at all.
If I open CS5 from the start menu, opens CS6.
If I right click > open with CS5, opens with CS6.
Went into Program Files > Adobe > Photoshop CS5 - Opened the .exe and CS6
You need to exit / quit PS CS6 first, then PS CS5 will start.
