In Premiere Pro CS5 I can use the tilde key '~' to toggle a palette between its default workspace size, or filling the screen. With so many people using two monitors for Photoshop nowadays, I would find it helpfull to have this feature. Perhaps it might toggle between default, full hight of the screen, and full screen. it would also have to work with third party extensions - specifically with font managers like TypeDNA.

Do you know about the "f" key in Photoshop?
Or Tab?

Chris, this is something different than our full screen mode. The DV apps (Premiere Pro, After Effects) have a notion of individual panels having focus. The ~ key maximizes the 'selected' panel to fill the entire screen.

Yes, but that doesn't make sense for any of the palettes in Photoshop (except maybe the timeline), so I'm wondering what he meant.

Hi guys

I am talkinf about Photoshop CS5 and beyond. My post here was prompted by a minor frustration with workspaces, and was probably a bit hasty. I can't see how to include an image in these posts, but the following illustrates my point:

I have two custom workspaces. I call this one Type. My default workspace looks like this, but the layers pallet is the full hieght of the screen. With the Tpe workspace i can access the TypeDNA palette, but would prefer it to be larger. Now I think about it, I could easily modify this workspace and replace the History palette with the TypeDNZ palette.

It's good to talk things through because it often throws up unexpected solutions.

Thanks
