Photoshop CS6: Tearing a tab into its own window makes it impossible to move. (Win, Task Bar)

Tearing a tab into its own window makes it impossible to move. (I don't use tabs because they're too inflexible.) If I try to move a document, it snaps to a totally different spot. If I move it multiple times, it slowly migrates across the screen until it is impossible to work on at all. Turning off the tab setting altogether does not help this problem. In fact, at this rate, doing so would make getting anything done impossible.

Secondarily, it would also be nice if every new document window did not appear in my toolbar, because then I have to alt+tab through potentially 10 open documents each time I switch to Photoshop. Plus, it's really cluttered.

The update to 13.0.1 contains a fix for this issue:

Go grab it, install it, and try it out. Let us know how it goes!

Hmm. Can you make a video of this behavior? http://forums.adobe.com/message/42092...

Well, that's the strangest thing. I'll see if we can repro internally. Thanks for the video.

Try moving your windows taskbar to the bottom of the desktop and see if that makes a difference.

Some co-workers noticed the same thing on windows 8 using cs6.

Yep, moving the taskbar to the bottom of the screen fixes the problem. As a personal comment, I can't go back to a horizontal task bar for the same reason I'm excited about the new Photoshop: it's a killer productivity upgrade, so hopefully you can get this fixed.

First thing I noticed when I tried out my new toy today. I am sorry, but this is horrible, For now, I will continue to use Photoshop 12 - that can hardly be the desired result from all your hard work...

I use Windows 7 with the task bar docked to the left. Like Justin, I do not want to change the position of my task bar just for one app that misbehaves.

Hey all, a workaround for this is to set your taskbar to Auto-Hide

Rightclick taskbar
Properties
Auto-Hide the Taskbar

Thanks!

I'm having an identical issue which is making it very difficult to use Photoshop CS6. I also don't use tabbed windows because of their inability to drag and drop easily between various windows. I'm on a custom made intel i7 6 core PC and Windows 7 64bit. Utilizing a GTX670 video card, system is only a few days old, so all drivers are up to date and current.

Would you please stop saying this and actually listen to the problem? Apparently not.

This comment was posted 3 months ago and is still a valid workaround if you have not installed the 13.0.1 update, but is unnecessary now.

Sorry, that workaround is not acceptable to me. Do you have any estimate of the date when a fix for this bug in Photoshop CS6 will be made available to your customers?

At this point, your other option is to move the taskbar away from the Leftside of the screen, or the top of the screen while using Photoshop with floating image windows.

I do not have information as to upcoming fix ETA.

Photoshop CS6, Window bug
when you have hopened a photo and you try to change it's position on the screen, it jumps back. (you cannot change the position of the photo - at least not where you want to have it)

Workaround: you can resize the window from the borders.
(issue seems to appear only when windows task bar is left or top)

(Soo far only tested with the Windows version, Win7/32bit)

I recently installed CS6 upgrade (Windows 7) and have this exact problem. Any progress on this bug? Will Adobe be issuing a patch/fix anytime in the near future?
