This feature was implemented in Photoshop CC 2019 (version 20.0), about a year ago.

Thanks for adding that feature but unfortunately it doesn't really work as expected:
it only locks the position of the panel but not the size (and when working with a wacom tablet accidentally changing the size happens quite often.)
it does not work with floating panels, which means it's useless when you are using a second monitor for your panels.

These problems are also mentioned in this thread: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/photoshop-cc2019-lock-workspace-not-working

Do you save your workingspace settings? Window > working space > new workingspace... I have a extra setting when I use tablet.

also does not solve the issue of accidentally un-docking the panel icon when you meant to just click on it. Happens to me with my tablet a lot too.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Locking palettes.

As an illustrator who uses a Wacom tablet and stylus constantly, it frustrates me to no end that you can't lock the palettes so that when you call yourself tapping on something it doesn't come sliding out and you end up wasting time putting it back in position. Plenty of others MUST have an issue with this, no?

Quite often when I try to open a docked panel, I'll drag it off and spawn a new window. I assume that there's a minimum distance for a panel to be dragged before it detaches. It'd be great if this distance was larger.

I assume others may have the same issue, even though some of us have been using Photoshop for years.

Could be just me, but I do this probably once a week. Anyone else have this issue?

When using a tablet I find that I quite often accidentally detach a docked panel rather than opening it.

I know that the tolerance was changed in CS6 but I would like to see it increased even more for tablets in PS CC.
