Photoshop: don't recenter image when changing screen modes or hiding the UI with "tab"

Dear Adobe,
When I leave my top toolbar docked, switch to full screen using "F" and toggle the interface using the "TAB" shortcut, the image tries to center itself.

This actually goes for the "F" shortcut, too. Please leave the image exactly where it is, I was looking at a specific area, and pressed "TAB" or "F" to view more of my image, it doesn't need to move or center :) I understand there's a bunch of difficult edge cases to consider, but the first (tab) problem seems like a feasible request at least.

My temporary solution is to undock the top toolbar, which is less than ideal.

Sounds like you're using Photoshop, but which version? Have you installed all the updates?

And are you using Windows? If so, which version?

A little screen cap might help, too.

Hi Chris and Jeff!
I'm indeed using Photoshop (tagged the post! ;) - on Mac OSX 10.8.2. It's the creative cloud version on CS6, 13.0.1 x64 - but this particular behavior has been in Photoshop for ages, and on both my desktop and laptop. It's just the way the image is centered (faithfully centered, I'd say, I find myself asking for in-accuracy for the first time :)



Thanks for having a look!

Ahh. I see/know what you're describing now. That is intentional but I can see how it could be jarring in some ways. I'll point our windowing peeps at your feedback. No promises on changes. :)

Maybe this behavior could end up in the "overscroll allways" plug-in? -the centering after interface hiding conflicts with the same actions and intentions I did and had when using that plug-in, too.

Many thanks, getting the windowing peeps to have a look is the most I can ask for! :)
