I sometimes do some photoshop work on my Apple laptop at home. I have an usual problem that I cannot fix. If I open up Layers/Styles and try to use the drop shadow feature the menu does not come up and the document is frozen. I figured out that the menu is coming up off the screen. I noticed at my work station when I use that drop feature the menu goes to the 2nd screen. How can I set the menu to appear in the main screen on the powerbook. If I select it now I can't see the menu to close it so you have to reboot the computer to clear the screen. Any Ides?
First, if you press the Escape key you should be able to clear out the dialog and return to Photoshop without having to reboot the computer.
Second, check your System Prefs and make sure that your Mac doesn't think there's a 2nd monitor there. If you've ever had a 2nd monitor connected, it may be getting confused and giving Photoshop bad info.
