Photoshop: only auto resize the bottom palette, instead of resizing all at once...

How about make Photoshop only auto resize the bottom palette, instead of resizing all palettes at once? Currently when going into fullscreen mode or when Photoshop's window is resized, all palettes are auto resized together and this causes undesired size changes to all of our palettes. By making Photoshop only auto resize the bottom palette, it will allow us to keep the above palettes fixed to our preferred custom sizes.

I am wondering if I should not tag this discussion as a bug report...

@PECourtjoie Yep this should be in the bug category. @Allen I have tried this on my machine and I am not seeing it. I do not doubt that you are seeing it I am just having a hard time getting it to happen on my side.

to reproduce the issue, you should use the same palettes setup as in my screenshot. it happens to palettes that can stretch vertically.

Maybe your screen resolution has something to do with it.

I remember reading a post on this site where at certain a screen resolution the camera raw dialog didn't work right.

(it was the toggle fullscreen button was missing at certain screen resolution
in the camera raw dialog)

Not saying the above is the cause, but since other users haven't added to this post, there may be something unusual about your setup.

the problem is caused by how the palette auto resizing behaves

Yes of course, but maybe something on you particular machine is the cause.

We have both mac and windows at work and i don't think i've ever heard someone complain about that in photoshop cs5/cs6 on windows.

it's a problem that happens when stretchy panels are stacked above the layers panel, as shown in the screenshots
