If you’ve been digging through Photoshop’s preferences you might have spotted a checkbox for Overscroll and wondered what it does, lets take a look;
What Does Overscroll Do?
There may be times when you want to move your image around on screen using the Hand tool. It the image is bigger than the work area then no problem, but if it fits you’ll find you can’t move it.
With Overscroll on however you can move the image around as much as you like. In my example here I want to see the font drop down and see the text, so Overscroll allows me to move the image over.
Where To Find Overscroll
If you’re on a PC then you’ll find Preferences under the Edit Menu while Mac users will find it under the Photoshop menu. The quickest way is to press Ctl+K (PC) or Cmd+K (Mac).
However, its the Interface section we’re after.
You’ll find the overscroll checkbox here, off by default.
