Photoshop CC 2018: Steals focus when running batch processes with the Image Processor
PS stealing focus, specifically when running batch processes with the Image Processor, Contact Sheet II, etc. As catch processes are run, screen control is lost to PS until entire process is completed, paralyzing workflow. No other functions on computer can be undertaken - can't leave photoshop to go back to bridge, can't open browser, can't check mail. Entire workflow is paralyzed. I understand this is a known issue; temporary work-around is to go to Photoshop/Preferences/Workspace and check "open as tabs". This work-around eliminates screen steal in image processor; it does not eliminate screen steal when running Contact Sheet II or other processes, and it is not a permanent fix if you prefer not to work in tabs. I am posting this at suggestion of Photoshop facilitator so that when updates occur and a permanent fix is implemented, there will be notification.
