Photoshop CC: Palette, workspace and tool shortcut problems on MacOS 10.9.

So many bugs!!!

I've got a fully updated Photoshop CC running on a Macbook Pro 15" 2.2Ghz i7 with the Mavericks 10.9.2. I use the laptop monitor as for all the palette menus and an Eizo CG223W for all the work.

Recently I've noticed that now when having used the brush tool and try to shortcut to another tool it won't change. I have to hit space, move the file around and then try to the shortcut again.

When saving the layers pallet jumps around, like jiggles. When I click on the layers palette it quickly disappears and reappears again. And randomly the workspace will rearrange itself, hiding palettes all over the damn monitors.

This is extremely frustrating.

Have you installed the shortcut and white window fix plugin? See http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

And yes, MacOS 10.9 has several problems with multiple displays.

Thank you! That patch seems to have solved the shortcut problem.

The multiple display thing is still pretty annoying though. Is this a Mavericks problem? Is there anything I can do about it?

Turns out putting all my palettes on my main monitor solves the giggly disappeary problem when I save a file or click on the layers palette.

Can someone at Adobe yell at someone at Apple?

Cheers.

That's a different problem that I haven't experienced. My panels just jump...wherever, off screen, who knows. Sometimes I can drag them back in, sometimes not.

OK. So you've tried both settings "Deselect Displays have separate spaces in Mission Control" and not assigning the application to a single space and it didn't have any affect on the issue you're seeing?

Actually, it didn't at first, but now it seems to have stopped. Problems solved?

Those Spaces settings won't take affect until you completely restart the computer.
