Can't Minimize Layers In Pse 9?
Posted 26 August 2011 - 02:28 PM
I've just purchase PSE 9. I'm trying to minimize open files so I can access others, but there doesn't seem to be a minimize command in the top right corner of each file. There's only an x on the tab at the top, and that closes the file completely. Is there a new way to do this?

And the consolidate option is greyed out for me.
Can either of you please explain a little more? Thanks.

One thing I've found in 9 that I don't like is that sometimes when you try to move a file, it loses that frame that has the X and minimize button. It happens if you try to move one file from on top of another and you touch the top or bottom of the work area. I haven't figured out what's up with that yet. But, if I go to the Float All, it puts them all back into their own frame. Does that make sense?
I hope this helps.

How about Cascade under Windows>Images? Is that grayed out also? Do you have some files open? If you don't have any open, those options are grayed out.
Hmmm, I'm not sure why you are not seeing the drop down menu on the left. The File menu is UNDER the PSE symbol on my page. Across the top of the screen is the PSE symbol, the little graphic I mentioned, Sign In, Create New Adobe ID, some space and then on the right Reset Panels, Undo, Redo, Organizer, a little house (which brings up the Welcome screen) and Minimize, Restore and Close X.
Is your workspace fully maximized? Maybe try hitting the Restore Button which should either make the program full screen or make it smaller on the screen (still open though) and then grabbing a corner and pulling it out to fit your screen. If that doesn't do anything, go ahead and maximize it again. I don't seem to be able to make what I'm seeing disappear.

Melissa, do you have what I described across the top of your screen now?
I'm glad that we were able to help.

Another thing to watch for is if you are moving your layers palette or the favorites around and want to dock it again, you will see a thick black line. This indicates the place where that will dock. It's difficult to explain but just play around with it. I am inclined to move my things around because I use two screens and like to see everything.

THANK YOU!! I had the same question, but just gave up the cause as one of those sad upgrade/downgrade things. Thanks for asking, Melissa, and thanks Dianne for the tip!!
