  1. I guess it largely depends on what you're used to. And the "New" window is the least of it. The other windows that open on top of the document you are working on are a different ball game and are really annoying when they pop up on top of your document so you can't see...as mentioned earlier.
  2. I use all that inner space to name what the preset is for. For example, if you used a site called Intergalactic Shadenfreude which needed a banner of 1063x227, then the space can easily be used to name the site and say what the preset is for (i.e., banner). It could just as easily be listed, as you suggest, thus saving space, but is there really a need since the window automatically disappears the moment you create the canvas/artboard.
  3. Careful what you say buddy, some of us are bloody animals!ðŸĪĢ😂
  4. I guess there's always going to be a tradeoff...as unhappy that can make us at times. Ooo, I love that one too! And the way the HSL covers the image so you can't see what's going on...unless of course you have the Navigation panel open, then you can see what's occurring--in minature. I need new glasses.🧐 Another favourite is the way the layer panel opens on the right side of the screen 95% of the time. Then BANG! Out of nowhere it's open on the left. Really disturbing when you're in the zone.ðŸĪŠ Thanks for the links. The one about floating panels explains exactly what happened to my studio--I accidentally undocked the entire group of panels. Who knew I was a magician? I can make things levitate without trying.😂
  5. Yes. This is a problem, the need to move one panel to access the full content of another panel. And I guess, this is one of the reasons the Studio couldn't be locked even if there was that capability. But it's annoying to have to do that and often causes unplanned 'rearrangement' of panels. Sometimes inserting a panel into another unintentionally, 'splitting' the main panel, so options of the main panel then sit below the accidentally inserted one. Having to chase them around the UI is time consuming. Less so now that the Preset button is sorted.😂 I guess there is a price for everything. If we want the capability of moving panels around, then we have to expect that they will wander sometimes. Okay, so I just learned there is such a thing as Resource Manager.😆 Obviously not a feature I've needed--yet. And what do you mean...useless icons? Mine opens to "My Presets" and I have nearly filled that 'large area' of which you speak.😄 Not having to recall and enter all those presets is a godsend.
  6. Yup, that was exact thing I was missing.😊 Thanks for the explanation. Well, that snippet did its job. It inspired me to visit his site. The dude certainly knows his canvas. Yeah, not a position I envy--having to reject a great pic to make room for an advert. You get points for originality. For all the things I've been called in the past, it's the first time I've ever been called Ginger.ðŸ˜ĩ ðŸĪĢðŸĪĢ
  7. I would love to take you up on that but the Jag is still in the repair shop getting the windscreen wipers fixed. I would settle for a Camberwell carrot. BTW, you have some very cool art on your site.👍
  8. Sorry, my recklessnessity took that out of context. 😉 You think more panel dock columns etc would solve the problem? I can only imagine how badly that could go after my experience the other day--I even managed to somehow get the image scroll bar to the outer edge of the entire screen without even a glimpse of it being done. Took me ages to find it as it was hidden by the panels docked on the right.ðŸĪĢ Re: The Quark...Now I'm not sure whether you're suggesting more panel dock columns as stated, or less panels but with the changing content (which would solve the problem but potentially revive the issue of constantly going to a drop down menu to change the needed panel?). Or maybe you were suggesting something entirely different?
  9. Q: On P.6 The left alignment of text seems to be out of whack with everything else, is that because it is the only page without colour at the edge? I like the general layout, but some of the spacing is odd and I can't determine if I'm missing something like needed page bleeds (but if that's it, they appear irregular). A few examples of this are: P.9 The text block isn't centralised (closer to the right than left) and the setting of the picture beneath doesn't suggest this is a bleed issue. P.36 The image on the bottom right could be more uniform as there is space to make it bigger, making the alignment closer to the left/right alignment of the image above it. That is an awesome picture of Luigi Mansi. Very...soulful. 👍
  10. Auto-open/close? That ain't music, that's noise! I have enough trouble with autocorrect. Apparently I'm not as predictable as computers expect.ðŸ˜ķ
  11. @Old Bruce I'm still learning things, and the reason for Studio Preset is something I learned yesterday. I don't know why I insist on enduring such frustration to get something through my skull (aka, so that's what Studio Preset is for). It got me thinking, for those of us that constantly move panels around accidentally, maybe there should be a way to lock the studio. I would certainly find it a great feature, as once I have my panels the way I like them, I rarely move them--purposely. However, making the suggestion seemed kinda silly if I was the only one with a reckless finger. If you do it too, it seems I'm not. But we may be in a special elect club--The Reckless Painters. Sounds like a Rock n Roll band...
  12. Today is the first time I've trashed the joint, but somehow I always manage to unintentionally swap contiguous panels around. This slows things down. I assumed they'd already have a lock feature, but that I was just being particularly thick by not being able to find it. ðŸ˜ĩ
