Photoshop CC: Floating Windows no Longer Open Images at Full View.

CC photoshop. After spending literally 4 hours on hold with various "professionals" in India. I asked a simple logical question and no one cared enough to actually answer it. I did get a call back today now 2 weeks later and I was invited to call back and go through another round of now what would be 4 to discuss the issue that no one can understand. My question:

When disabling to open in tabs and electing to open in floating windows. All images now in CC open with only a portion of the image in view. Forcing the user to click command 0 or command +/- to see the entire image. Everyone assumes that I am saying that I can not see my image at 100% I get it that is not relevant. I just want to open images and see them without having to command anything. This has been the standard since layers have been introduced. It makes no logical since for the windows to open this way. More importantly the fact that there is no standard of tech support for a product that is designed for professional use is unacceptable. It is good that you have a monopoly on the market. I guess that is the luxury. I have been a proud evangelist for PS for the last 12 years. This one issue that should be a simple fix has turned in to a nightmare.

Do you have the application frame on?
And did you try to shrink it, and the documents open scaled to fit inside the app frame?

Same here.  Everytime I open an image, it's not full view on the screen.   I always hit command 0 to make it full height of my screen.  Not a big deal, but really....   why is this not happening?

Hi Brandon, the zoom factor is intentional (gives a sharper interpolation than intermediate zoom factors).

There is a way to achieve what you want, however.

1. record an a new action, call it "Fit"
2. Choose "Insert Menu Item" from the Actions panel fly-out menu
3. Choose View > Fit on Screen
4. Stop recording the action
5. Select File > Scripts > Script Events Manager
6. In the dialog click "Enable Events to run scripts/actions"
7. For Photoshop Event, select "Open Document"
8. Click the radio button next to Action and navigate to your action "Fit" from the pop-up menus
9. Click (add) from the right column. Then click (Done)

Any document you open will zoom to fit in your window.
