I am having a devil of a time trying to re-locate palettes. I want to re-arrange them and even lock one onto the bottom of another. I read how I am supposed to be able to move (drag) one palette to the bottom edge of another, release the mouse, and thereby lock the two palettes together. Supposedly as I do this, I should see the bottom edge of the target palette highlight, signaling the lock. I don’t see this. Any ideas why? Or should I say why not? Is there a preference (option) somewhere affecting this?

Thanks

It’s a pain, but once you get the hang it’s fairly easy.

Pull one palette (not combined) by the tab and when you are there you will see a double line highlight on the target palette’s bottom line. If you are not careful you will just add it to the tabs on that palette.

Adobe could have made this easier.

Oh yeah, once you have things set the way you want, save it as a Work Space. You will be happy you did, believe me.

I love that feature

my new monitor swivels to vertical
I need to re-place the palettes each time
the "save my workspace" is the BOMB!!!
I keep a couple diff palettes open depending on my task
