Alt+tab dialogue (to switch application) often doesn't work properly, won't appear at all or appears and disappears instantly when called from Photoshop in full-screen mode.

Howdy Alex,

Could you please provide more information. I've tried two different machines and could not reproduce any such problem.

Thanks,
David

Ok, I think I've narrowed it down a bit.

It happens when I have a 200+MB 16bit file opened in full screen mode and zoomed in. When it's not zoomed in and not in full screen mode, alt+tab works as normal.

additional info:
Nvidia 580GTX, 1.5GB
resolution 2560x1440

Might have something to do with having an area selected.

I'll give a go at reproducing it too, just wanted to report that I've experienced it too.

Out of Beta though.

And yes.

Hit "F" twice (dunno what they call that second full screen mode) and use the rectangle (or something else) to select an area.

Then hit alt+tab.

Doesn't work.

I have the same problem also. I'm using Photoshop CS6 with the Creative Cloud.

This glitch happens to me in all three screen modes.
