We have problem with Adobe Photoshop for Mac application in product Parallels Access on Mac OS.
When Parallels Access or any other application (for example custom windows manager like a Mizage Divvy) try to move/resize any Adobe Photoshop window using Mac OS Accessibility API we see that window doesn't move to new position and doesn't change size.

It would be very useful if you support some main aspects of Mac OS Accessibility API:
1. support of AXUIElementSetAttributeValue with kAXPositionAttribute and kAXValueCGSizeType parameters so we can move and resize Photoshop windows.
2. support of AXUIElementCopyAttributeValue:
2.1 for kAXCloseButtonAttribute, kAXZoomButtonAttribute, kAXMinimizeButtonAttribute parameters so we know what actions we can do with your windows and perform this actions using AXUIElementPerformAction kAXPressAction.
2.2 for kAXTitleAttribute parameter so we can correctly display window title
2.3 for kAXMainWindowAttribute and kAXFocusedWindowAttribute parameters so we can detect currently active window
