PS 2015: Printing dialog window opens always in standard size. If you enlarge the window, it opens again in standard size in the next printing process. If you have a big printing volume it really could bother because it is too small! I think this wasn't in older versions.

On my PC the print dialog is opened with the last used size. (Win10)

That sounds like another bug in MacOS 10.11 that messes up the size of the OS open and save dialogs (in many applications). But the Photoshop print dialog should be controlled by Photoshop's preferences (which remembers the last used size).
We'll have to dig into that and see what is overriding our dialog size.

I print a lot.

Before CC I opened a print dialog box in Photoshop and it remembered its position and size. It's a big (long) dialog box with many option to choose, that's why it's so important.
Unfortunatelty, in Photoshop CC it always opens minimized. I have to scroll it or stretch it every time.

Please, fix it for me and many frustrated users.

Thank you.

Can you please update to Mac OS 10.11.6 which was released recently. It appears to fix this issue and the problem with Open and Save dialogs reverting to their original size between invocations.
