Nik Floating Panel Annoyance and How to Deal with it
I know many of you use the Nik tools so I thought you might find this helpful.
The floating Nik Panel is a source of annoyance to me - it does not dock into the PS UI like the PS Tools do and it constantly gets in the way, especially when I am using my Wacom Cintiq Tablet. There is no way to make it dock into the sides of PS, so there's a way to get rid of it until you need it, as closing it does not help - the next time PS starts up, it appears again.
In the Nik panel, click "Settings" in the bottom left:
Then in the window that opens, choose "Do not open the Selective Tool" and then click "OK" at the bottom.
Now, the next time PS opens, that annoying panel will not automatically open.
To bring up the panel at any time, do the following:
That brings it back.
