  1. The update still resets the interface, which is not desirable.

    Saving Interface Layouts

    Just had the same experience. It's frustrating to have to set everything up *again*.
  3. Having a similar problem at the moment. Having trouble finding a solution a year later.

    Update to Photo 1.5.2 and Designer 1.5.3

    I saw that the first time, it looked like a couple panels were opened that I didn't need, but it only happened the first time I opened Photo.
  5. The irony of expecting this in a vector tool is that I was generally more happy with the way Photoshop would convert selections into vector shapes. I was usually able to achieve acceptable results with that, and usually with only minor tweaking. Just had to make good selections.
  6. Yeah, I've given Inkscape a try in the past. I actually found some fairly recent web based tools that gave me better results than Inkscape did, but I wouldn't say that makes the task trivial still. Those weren't stellar results either, just better.

    But does it help a user who sees this thread and not another, indicating that, "No, the topic isn't dead, we're still waiting, and you're not alone in asking."? I assume the reason so many exist is probably they weren't tagged, or tagged well, though it's always possible the poster didn't look for an existing. I've looked for a specific issue a few times, just to later be pointed to a thread that didn't come up in my searches. So maybe having a way to move these to the original topic that best fits the issue would help, at least my user experience.

    Save Workspace

    Well, that's almost not fair, Blender is like a digital Super-Software. But yeah, like 9 workspaces by default, I believe based on user habits from the people who actually work on the open projects?
  9. Yeah, even after the last update things are [almost] exactly the same, which is nice. However, I also think the workflow habits is a great point. Especially if you consider a person may not own both Photo and Designer. If I'm working on photo retouching, it's almost a completely different UI layout then I'd like while working on a text/graphical project. And I own designer, but if it's work I can do in Photo, I'd still much rather click over to my other saved workspace than open another program. I had the same thing going on with Adobe, I could get away with quite a lot of vector in Photoshop, and I would avoid Illustrator as much as possible (mostly because I really kinda hated working in Illustrator, to be honest - and kudos there, because I love playing with Designer!).

    Cool, thank you.
  11. I just updated, but I'm unable to find any place that lists the benefits (or damage) this update brings to the software. Thanks.

    Yet another workspace request thread. I'll add my bump to illustrate this feature has been requested for at least 2 years. Is there a way to consolidate all these? If I only post in the most recent thread, it feels like the issue has less weight being requested a couple months ago, versus a couple years ago.

    Save Workspace

    There are so many threads discussing this, I'll add my bump here to illustrate this feature has been requested for at least a year and a half.

    Saving Interface Layouts

    I think it's obvious JFisher's response is completely invalid.
  15. Is it the default position of an Affinity moderator to address an issue with close-minded disregard? There are obviously situations where a UI can reset without being reset manually. I work in a digital arts lab where the computers automatically reset after every shut down, and every time the students come back it's like the software was opened for the first time. I'm not IT, and I'm not the only Instructor, I don't have the option to go in and set things however I want for every computer, so saving workspaces would be invaluable. And as already mentioned, many users prefer different workspaces for different workflows. The default layout is cluttered for a new user, and we don't need all the same tools and settings in all projects. So, there are *several* reasons for having the option to save a UI setup.
