I, like so many others use a Wacom Cintiq. Because I don't always want to use the tablet for work I choose to open photoshop on my main display and the mirror the displays when I want to use my Cintiq. Manually minimize and move Photoshop over every time would be a pain in the ***. So, how about adding a shortcut feature in Photoshop to Switch which displays menus are shown. Because then I could still have my main display for images and reference stuff while still using the Cintiq. I would assume it would have been a small but greatly appreciated feature by a lot of artists!

Not sure if this is the kind of solution you were looking for, but I have a similar workflow for a lot of programs I use and in Windows you can use the OS hotkeys:

Win-RightArrowKey to shift the active window. Repeat until it is on the monitor you want.

Win-UpArrowKey to full-screen active window

I don't use a mac, but a quick search makes it look like you need a 3rd-party solution to do the same in OSX.
