Multi monitor Photoshop issue...

Heya

So heh funny story. Years ago I've asked Adobe to fix photoshop not remembering on what screen it is. As my main screen is 1920x1200 for CGI and my PS is Cintiq 2560x1440 for retouching - which I just upgraded to from previous model of 1600x1200. So every time I shut down PS and start it up again it starts on wrong screen. Because of that max size of PS is set to 1200. So when I drag it to Cintiq all Layers/channels and anything else is also limited to 1200 thus leaving a gap and wasting expensive space.... Now if only PS would fix the problem years ago when I asked for it we would not have this problem now. But now you guys are causing even more problems...

Fix it this time maybe ? Or when 4k screens get in we should only use 50% of our screen?

Screen - wasting space at the bottom could stick 6 more layers there and trust me its important to have it if my comp has 500 layers + !

What OS version are you using?

Photoshop does remember multimonitor layout, and that is working well for everyone else. So I'm curious why it doesn't work on your system.

Windows 7. No version of photoshop has ever remembered its layout position while in full screen(maximized)mode. As soon as I shut down and start up again its back up at main display screen. The only way around it was to resize the photoshop by hand to max size but not maximized... as long as it was windowed it remembered. More or less...

Even after I drag it I still have to drag by hand all the extra icons, save dialog, open dialog, filters etc etc...

OK, that might be the key: full screen mode on Windows. We'll see if we can reproduce it.

Yeah could be... Make sure your primary monitor set in graphic preference is smaller resolution than other monitor. So when you drag it from your primary screen to secondary which is bigger PS should limit UI size...

Good fix may be that on PS open he should check all screens connected to PC and then pick the largest x y resolution for setting up limits...
