OK... Hello, my name is Adam, and I've been designing for years.

I've never had a problem like this one occur before now.

Here's the issue:

When I select to resize an image the box that opens has drifted off my screen, and it has slowly risen upward more and more. I noticed this about 2 weeks ago and couldnt grab the top bar to bring it down as it was already out of sight. Now everytime I go to resize something it drifts a tad farther, and a tad farther until now it's virtually impossible to see anything and I've been using the blind tab method for making adjustments.

Below are some pictures to demonstrate what exactly is happening. The first one shows where I'm going to select what, the second shows where the box is after it opens.

The third shows me picking a color, and the fourth shows how this problem has spread to that box as well.

I'm hoping there is a simple solution, any help for this at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Adam

Look for a 'reset pallete locations/dialogue boxes' or similar option in Preferences.

Thanks... I tried that, and it didnt work...lol

I'm currently using 6.0 now... Which kinda sucks, but at least it works.

Guess its time to invest in CS2

I suppose there's the uninstall/registry search and delete option.

I notice you have windows "skinned". is that an xp theme or some kind of windowShade program? I ask because I've seen windowShade programs screw with window positions before. Have you tried disabling it?

The Windows theme thing was the first thing that came to my mind about the problem before reading the other replies.. Did you figure it out yet?


*Oh yeah.. My name's Adam too.. :)
