I'm having problems with my Custom Workspace as compared to using the Photography
workspace, namely the on screen size when using Ctrl+0 to enlarge an image to fill the screen and also Ctrl_Alt+0 to go to 100%. In fact, at 100%, I get a strip across the screen about 2/3 the height of the full screen, while invoking Ctrl+0 gets me an image size about 20% whereas in Photography Workspace, it's about 26%.

My custom workspace uses two 24”x10” screens set for “Extend”. I tile the pallets to fill the right hand screen, naming the workspace with my own name. Since “Photography” doesn't show this problem but occupies only one screen, I decided to move the palettes from left to right. Moving a few of them is ok, but then I was amazed to see that as I filled up the screen by adding to the default palettes, the system now has the reduced visibility!

Instant insanity!

I'm not sure exactly where the rename occurs as I fill the screen, or perhaps, if a specific palette triggers the changeover. But occurs, it does.

What do I do about this? In order to see full screen I have to switch to Photography, invoke full screen then back to my workspace and don't touch Ctrl+0 again. Cumbersome!

There are two other problems with CC2015. One is that on first opening Photoshop then a file, the scroll wheel to change size nor the ability to move the image say to center it, doesn't work. I have to minimize first, then bring it back to have full control. After that, it runs ok.

The second is the tiling itself. Some tiles, most tiles, are adjustable in width and vertical length. Some are fixed and worst of all, the fixed ones are not all the same size. Try to tile a 24x10 screen seamlessly with that nonsense! In fact, I wonder if the tho problems are connected, that is, tiling with the fixed size tiles causes the system to rename from Photography workspace to my name(!).

Hopefully, I'm doing something seriously wrong because I would hate to think this is SOP! At any rate, these problems did not exist in the previous (2014) version, except for the fixed tile size difficulty. I'm running Win 7 Ultimate on an Intel Haswell platform, AMD Radeon R7 200 series.

Edited for readability.
