Drop Down Menus & Floating Studio Assets


Recommended Posts

I'm an AP newbie & Photoshop defector. I'm gradually learning how to set up AP and I've come across something that bugs me and I was wondering if there was a fix for this.

I have set up an additional studio asset panel on the left of the screen but, if I click on a drop down menu to select a font, for example,, it is hidden behind the studio asset panel which is really infuriating. Does anyone know of a simple way to overcome this please?

Thanks

It looks like you have a floating set of studio panels on the left. If you drag it a bit further it should dock, which might resolve that problem. Drag it left and up a bit until you get the blue highlight.

Thanks for responding Walt but, I moved it around as you suggested and it didn't lock into place and I couldn't see any blue light. Is there a setting in preferences that I should be looking for to make it dock on the left side?

Not that I know of, though you might check whether you have View > Show Left Studio enabled.

Yes, I tried that and it was 'greyed out' so, I did a studio reset and the 'show studio left' option was now available, however, it still does not dock the panel with the font menu appearing behind the asset panel still. Is there a snap to grid command somewhere that I'm missing?

... you must drag all the way to the edge of the area where you want to dock the panel.
