    Is there a way to easily convert a panel created with the Adobe Configurator that I created to speed up my workflow to the CC 2014 version? I find I am still using CC since I do not have access to my panel.

      Do you have an example of one of your panels? Is it tool based? or do you have buttons to trigger different commands?

        Thanks for getting back to me. My panel contains several tools – since I like to paint several of my brushes are set up as actions so that I can switch to them quickly. Also several menu items like switching to 8-bit mode, rasterizing a layer, adding Hue/Sat Adj. Layers and Curves. Also use to get into OnOne Perfect Effects 8. Pretty basic stuff but saves me lots of time.

          Couple of suggestions:

          You may find “PS Tools” – By Davide Barranca – A Configurator-like replacement as a Tools panel for Photoshop CC 2014 useful –

          For triggering other commands through simple buttons, have you tried Button Mode in the Actions Panel?

            I added the PS Tools but it is limited to just the Tools – will help some. Hopefully someone will add in the Menu items to this panel. The actions for my old panel are still in my Action Panel and I could set them up on shortcut keys. When painting, if you can just click quickly on things with a stylus pen instead of using your keyboard, it goes much faster. Of course this can probably all be set up in the Wacom, but the panel had been a really quick fix for me. Thanks for the help.

            Yeah. I’m sure we’ll see improvements with custom panel creation for HTML5 panels.

    One question. Can PS be installed on my “D” Drive?

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 6:48 AM on August 20, 2014  

      Yes. In the Creative Cloud application, click the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and select Preferences. Then click “Apps.” You can change the app language and install location from here.
