After upgrading to Camera Raw 6.4, when I have it open I cannot view my windows taskbar. I have "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows" checked under Taskbar and start menu properties dialog box. With the earlier version of Camera Raw I was able to toggle between various applications using the taskbar while camera raw was open.

Please advice.

I use a 13" MacBook Pro which I use when I'm travelling; a 27" iMac when I'm not. The problem occurs on the MacBook. I'm using Photoshop/Bridge CS5.1 and ACR 6.6.

Going back to your comment at the beginning of this thread, have I understood correctly that the changes that Adobe introduced were designed to help users of small screens who wanted the full screen mode ?

If this is correct then I'm not sure I understand how the “changes” introduced in ACR 6.X help small screen users. Let me explain.

With CS4 and ACR 5.7 this all works correctly. ACR opens above the Dock in ‘normal’ mode. Click the ‘full screen’ button you refer to above and the Dock disappears with ACR displaying full screen. Open with ACR in full screen mode and it fills the entire screen.

With CS5 and ACR 6.6 ACR opens in ‘normal’ mode but filling the whole screen, as if in ‘full screen’ mode but entangled in the Dock (see the screenshot below).

Clicking on the ‘full screen’ button removes the Dock but the ACR window size remains unchanged.

What I want, and I believe others will agree, is the same behaviour as ACR 5.X – as described above. This logically gives users of both modes what they need, surely ? This seems to me to be a bug where ACR does not know whether the Dock is present or not and whether it is in full screen mode or not.
