View Full Version : Photoshop CS2: Double click palette well items to activate--NOT rename

10 October 2006, 05:01 AM
Photoshop CS2:

Is it possible to have double click palette well menu items to activate that item instead being prompted to rename? This will work better for users since it will allow users to double click on the drop down to select the item, then the menu disappears back into a tab. Selecting items is used more frequently and with more priority than item rename [which can be done via right click menu].

This applies to:

- brushes
- tool presets
- and possibly other potential palette well drop downs

I dont quite know what you mean where you say "the drop down" but I agree that double clicking the layers name should not invoke layer remaning (if that is what you mean).

Myself and quite a few others have begged Adobe to change this for future releases (or at least have a preference where this can be changed).

I also dont like how double-clicking the layers icon itself brings up the layer style palette and wished this was changed too.

Ahh..I see that you are talking about docked palletes when you say "the drop down".

I understand now!
