Exporting the Panel

Once you have all of the elements you want set in place in your panel, it's time to export the panel to Photoshop. Click on File > Export. Then navigate to the directory where the panels are stored in Photoshop:

Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Plugins/Panels

Once you have the location set, click on OK. Adobe Configurator will display a message letting you know that the panel has been exported, as shown in Figure 7.

Once the panel is complete, it's a good idea to restart Photoshop to see your changes. Access the panel by choosing Window > Extensions. You should see the new panel listed on the submenu (see Figure 8). If you're using Photoshop CS4, the panel starts, and you'll see an access message; you'll need to close the panel and reopen it. (This is apparently a security feature.) Photoshop CS5 users will be able to open the panel straightaway. Any changes that you make to the panel can be exported again, and you won't need to restart Photoshop to access those.

Once you have the panel with all of the tools you need in place, you can turn off all of the panels in Photoshop by going into the Window menu and unchecking the panels in the list. If you're using the panel to replace the tools that you would normally use in Photoshop, click on Window > Tools. This can now be your default toolset.
