Hiding and showing palettes

When you need to fully maximize your screen space, hide all the currently open palettes, then make them reappear only when you need to use them. If you hide the palettes when your document is in Maximized screen mode, the document window will resize dynamically to the maximum screen width; redisplay the palettes and the document window will resize again as needed.

To hide or show the palettes:

  • Do any of the following:

    Press Tab to hide or show the Tools palette and all open palettes.

  • Press Shift-Tab to hide or show just the palettes and keep the Tools palette open.

To make hidden palette docks reappear:

  • If you want to conserve screen space but don’t want to hide the palettes, collapse the ones you use least frequently to icons.
