This is possibly Adobe's most annoying idea yet.
(Photoshop version 24.5.0)
I don't know what to call it, but just look at this thing constantly encroaching on my space:
Essentially, these two large buttons that perform functions specific only to the recently introduced generative AI features... will follow you around no matter what part of your document you're working on.
Because you know... all graphic designers do all day is isolate subjects from backgrounds. And we've never heard of keyboard shortcuts, so all of us need this omnipresent toddler bar to remind us that we should be using the hot new AI features, on every image.
(The new AI features are honestly great. Nothing kills my enthusiasm for them more than this panel.)
So please, what is this UI element called? And more importantly, how to I dock it or kill it?
Update: I've found out it's called the Contextual Task Bar, and that the ellipsis button
... can hide it. But now, having hidden it, I don't know where to find the buttons when I actually need them:
- Select Subject
- Remove Background
I also can't seem to reveal the bar again, because View → Show does not presently include "Contextual Task Bar" in the list of items that can be shown.
But even if I could bring it back and have it in my way again, I would rather be able to call upon the functionality of its buttons from some other (non-floating) area of the UI, or via keyboard shortcuts.
Please help me restore my sanity. :-)
