Photoshop CS6: Optional(?!) overscroll plugin is dearly missed.

TLDR: I feel like gnawing my hands off without the optional overscoll plugins. Please provide them as soon as possible.

I'm in love with the new version of photoshop, yet she hurts me on a daily basis by forcing me to enter a full screen mode to pan beyond the window borders. I have trouble dragging layers between documents now, because my interface is in the way (Using tab to hide it doesn't work, since I need the layer palette... - yes I know pressing F7 will bring in only that panel while the rest is hidden, no, I'm still begging you for the overscroll plugins)

Many thanks,
Herman

Hi Herman,

You can find it in on this page http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/p...

Look for, "Download the optional extensions for Mac OS only: Download optional extensions for Mac OS"

regards,
steve

Hi SG, and the rest of the photoshop team,
if I have a document that's smaller than the window I'm viewing it in, I still can't scroll.

In the case of the screenshot I added here, flattery aside, I'm still not free to pan whenever I want. I can't pan a side of the document to the center of my screen. This feels like grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory ;)



In other news, I might name my firstborn after CS6. It's awesome :)

Hello Fruityth1ng. Did you restart Photoshop after adding the extension?

Yes, several times! Does it behave differently on other users' (your) machines?

I can reproduce this behavior on both my (Lion) machines.

0: verify screen mode is set to standard
1: verify "zoom resizes windows" is checked
2: Make new document of 512x512
3: zoom to 100% using command+1
4: observe that one can not pan
5: additionally, resize the window to clip the document a little, and experience the bliss of free panning again.

* I have "open documents as tabs" disabled
* I have "Enable Floating Document Window Docking" disabled
* I checked if this was a (locked)layer thing, too. Which suspect isn't.

(somehow the notification ended up in my spam, sorry for the late reply)

Should I move this to a separate topic?

If any future software archaeologists happen across these posts, please know that having "Overscroll Floating Windows.plugin" enabled at the same time as "Overscroll Always.plugin" messes up the latter.

Conclusion: kill "Overscroll Floating Windows.plugin"

Ugh. Yeah. That's one of the problems with some of the extension plug-ins: They can conflict if you're not careful.

Thanks for the heads up, Herman. I'll see if there's any reason to distribute the "Overscroll Floating Windows.plugin" anymore.

I'll also look into adding an Adobe knowledgebase doc. for troubleshooting.
