This one's probably an age old, but did anyone figure a way to move canvas out of window borders when in standard mode [permanently]?
Here's the thing, i know its possible to MAKE photoshop allow this by undocking the window, zooming in [so it goes bigger than what would fit on screen] and than docking it again. This, somehow, changes the behavior and the canvas starts to act like it would in full screen mode. Of course, there are many ways to undo the "effect" while you're working so it becomes somewhat tedious having to go over it again and again...
Its really not all that big of a deal, but i find this kind of irregularities in professional software quite annoying.
Hold the spacebar and the mouse cursor will change to a hand. Click and hold anywhere on the canvas and move your mouse/pen. You will be able to move the canvas anywhere you like, including outside of the bounds imposed by the scrollbars.
I agree that the inconsistency in the scrollbars is an obvious bug and it's a wonder that it hasn't been fixed.
micronomicon, no, that wont do.
And, to be clear, moving canvas in Fullscrean Mode is not a problem. My point is that in Standard Mode it is centered and locked to that position. Make a new file of any resolution, hold a spacebar and you wont be able to move it - press "f" and its suddenly unlocked. However, i dont like fullscreen so it bothers me. Hope this explains it better.
Recently I figured that if a file is bigger resolution than your photoshop window (and it usually is when you're painting), you can hold space, right click and chose "Actual Pixels". After that zoom back (with scrubby zoom enabled) to see the whole canvas which will not be locked anymore.
Sorry for reviving an old thread for such trivial matter, but it really makes no sense that adoby actually wanted it to work this way. Than again, they still cant make a decent color wheel so...
