thank you guy for your support & the solution today. I think it solved the issue with the floating Screen somehow, but... something new is happening :-/
I think it depends if I work “with“ or “without“ the graphic-card-support and/or the Application-Frame On/Off (just on MAC).
I am using PS on a MacBookPro here with a Nvidacard on 2screens. I always work in PS on the bigger 2nd screen which is a Wacom-Cintiq:
1. I open a PSD-file here (a test-file orange/yellow)
2. it opens in the upper-left corner – ok so far!
3. i changed the screen-mode (F), and...
4. the the hole canvas appears in a small rectangle in the upper-left corner and the other 3/4 of the canvas is just black and not useable?!! (see screenshot)
...thats absolutely useless here. When i switch OFF the graphic-card-support is seams to work fine in the frameless PS. Or i have to switch the PS-Application-Frame ON to use the graphic-card-support again. But use “graphic“ and “frameless“ at the same time it cause this new issue?!
This was not an issue in CC2017!
Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Photoshop CC 2018: Floating document windows in fullscreen w/menu bar causes wind....
this are my setting here:
MacBook Pro (Retina, 2012) 15inch (2880 x 1800)
with macOS High Sierra (10.13.2)
2,7 GHz i7 with 16GB Ram
Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1 GB with the latest drivers:
CUDA Driver Version: 387.99
NIVIDIA Web Driver: 3126.96.36.199.25.104
the 2nd Display is a WACOM Cintiq 27GHDT (2560 x 1440)
It is connected via an elgato Thunderbold 2 Dock to my MacBookPro.
Let me know if you need more info – thanks!
Since the latest update (v 19.1.0) if you toggle (w/ the F key) between screen modes, the content of your window doesn't refresh. In Photoshop I use floating windows (not tabbed) and when I want to put a window in full screen for example, the windows gets bigger but the content itself gets smaller and cropped (like a window-in-a-window)... Even if you zoom in, your content still cropped, it doesn't update the window size... Very bothering for my daily workflow...

Delighted to see Adobe has fixed the real-time text-adjustment issue with version 19.1.0, but suddenly any image viewed in "Full Screen Mode With Menu Bar" mode on my secondary display is much reduced in size, and slammed into the upper right corner, with black bars below and to the right (which I assume is the result of an incorrect resolution value being passed somehow).
Unchecking "Use Graphics Processor" rectifies the problem, but I'd rather not lose this functionality (it's all or nothing; toggling off individual items within the graphics processor prefs and restarting Photoshop doesn't fix the problem).
Have system requirements changed in 19.1.0? Assume it's related to the new Photoshop build and not a random video card quirk, given the timing.
But unfortunately, with frustration and dissapointment a new problem.
I'm working with a MacBook pro and an apple thunderbolt 27in display. When in 'full screen mode with menu bar' the image is displayed very small with a large space of black.
When zoomed the image enlarges up behind the black space.
What seems to be happening is that in 'full screen mode with menu bar' it sizes the image for the MacBook screen not the thunderbolt screen.
Not a problem in 'standard mode' or 'full screen mode' without menu bar. I still have the previous version of photoshop and there is no problem there with screen mode displaying of images.
But that version glitches over the panels and does the very annoying snapping of image to centre when working.
Are we going to get past this era of frustration with photoshops glitches and unreliability? Or is it time to look at the alternatives?
After all this is a paid for service and it doesn't work as it should.
I’d like to clarify this workaround as having two options. First, let me identify the three screen modes:
[With Tabs unchecked in Preferences] Press the “F” key to cycle through these modes.
A - Floating windows WITH palettes, menus, or option bar (This is the mode with the bug - cropped image in the upper left hand corner)
B - Isolates one image file WITH palettes, menus, BUT NO OPTION BAR. (The cropping bug may also appear in this mode)
C - Full Screen Mode - isolates one image file WITHOUT any palettes, menus, or option bar (Unless you press Tab, then you will get palettes and menus, BUT NO OPTION BAR)
If tabs are employed, then it’s a more preferred way to work, because you get the palettes, menus AND options bar. Let me explain:
Go to Preferences>Workspace. Turn on “Open Documents as Tabs” and “Enable Floating Document Window Docking”.
Now by pressing the F key, the screen modes are as follows:
A - Single image file WITH tabs for other open files at the top (just below the options bar), along with palettes, menus, and option bar. I don’t like this view because when the image is zoomed out enough to see the whole thing, I can’t move it around - it’s locked in the center, sometimes behind a palette.
B - Single image file WITHOUT tabs - along with palettes, menus, AND OPTION BAR (This is the mode I prefer to work in, because I can isolate one image, I get all my palettes, menus AND the option bar - very important, because here I can change all the attributes of the tool I’m currently using.
C - Full Screen Mode - isolate one image file WITHOUT any palettes, menus, or option bar (Unless you press Tab, then you will get palettes and menus, but NO OPTION BAR)
I’ve been a digital painter in Photoshop for about 18 years, so I’m approaching this from a painting perspective with a primary painting image on my Cintiq and reference images on my MacBook Pro monitor. Some people don’t like tabs and they want to see multiple windows open all at once. I like that too. Any window can always be undocked and then it’s a floating window again. But then when you cycle through the screen modes, the cropping bug will show up again.
For now, Tabs seems to be the best workaround for me. I hope this helps!-Scott
I just upgraded to Photoshop 2018 (release 19.1.0) and there is a major bug with full screen mode on a retina macbook pro hooked up to an external monitor in dual-display mode. When entering full screen mode on the external monitor the "usable" area seems to only be 25% of the screen size as illustrated in the attached screenshots. Trying to use the hand tool (space) to pan works, but moving it outside the bounds of the usable area crops it off.
Specs of my setup:
- Macbook pro (15-inch 2016)
- MacOS Sierra (v. 10.12.6)
- Radeon Pro 450 2048mb graphics card
- Built in display - 15.4 inch (2880x1800)
- External display - Dell U2717D - 27 inch (2560x1440)
Just updated yesterday to 19.1 and I have the same issue. I work with a 2015 macbook Pro with 10.11.6 osx and an Eizo as primary screen. Hitting tab a couple times fixes the weird image position, but I often switch between full screen modes and hide/show the panels in my workflow. Every time I switch I have to hide / show the panels once more by hitting tab few times to view the image I'm working on normally. Hope this will be fixed soon, it's frustrating.
I have Mac OS Sierra, Photoshop CC 2018 and since this latest 19.1 update (not in 19.0) my full screen suffers from a strange problem when I'm NOT using an application frame. If I hit the f-key to switch to full-screen mode, it initially looks like the enclosed image: the screen seems split in 4 areas, and I can only work in the upper left quadrant. When I temporarily switch to another document (Cmd-tilde) and back again, everything seems alright again.
I guess it might have something to do with the fact I'm using multiple screens: two Cinema Displays and the screen of my MacBook Pro with a retina screen. One of the Cinema Displays is my main screen. When I work on my MacBook Pro without any extra screens attached, the bug doesn't occur.
I looked for earlier messages, but as I typed my title and received the results from the automated query, it said: "We found 34368 similar conversations". This thread wasn't in the top 10, and I wasn't in the mood for looking through 34358 other ones... Lazy me !
Seems that my problem has been reported by other users as well (good to know), and has been acknowledged by Adobe, so we'll just sit back and wait for 19.2, while hitting the tab key for now. ;-)
Photoshop CC 19.1.0 on a MBP running OSX 12.6. When you have a floating document window and hit 'F' for fullscreen, you get the result below. The grey area is the work area, the black area is completely fixed. Zooming in and out only magnifies/shrinks the image in the grey area. Somewhat defeats the point of having a 24" monitor.
Also: I would much prefer to have a proper bug report page but fifteen minutes of googling only turns up this option. I don't want to have "a conversation", I want to file a bug report with the company that's charging me £600 a year and allows a brain-meltingly stupid bug like this to go out in a release version.
EDIT: Fixed it. Had to turn off the "Use Graphics Processor" option in preferences under the 'Performance" section. (This is also the only way to get acceptable performance out of InDesign, BTW, and I think rather defeats the point of buying a MBP with a decent graphics card.)
However, I do think there's no need to take any action, because:
- software bugs are an integral aspect of software development;
- the issue can easily be circumvented without further sacrifice;
- the developer has the clear intention to solve the matter asap;
- the Adobe EULA probably waives any bug-related damage or loss.
You can send me a $15 check, for time spent on this legal consultation...
More, I can hardly accept that a big one like Adobe could put on the air a version with such a big bug affecting so many users !
Let's hope for a swift (!) solution ...
