When I start up AD, I get a blank field, as in older versions, which I like and which is what I want. BUT, once AD is open and I start a new file, I get the preset window pop-up, which I find very annoying. Is there a way of stopping this window from popping up please?

Thanks.

There are SS below showing what I want and what I do not want.

That dialog is how you specify the parameters (document size, etc) for your new file.

What would you replace it with?

Old versions still had a dialog. It just looked different.

Even on this version, when I open the APP, it gives me what I want, the blank slate where I can just add shapes and immediately work on. It's only when I start a new file after I have AD open that this window pops up. That's why it's giving me a pain... I just want it to be the same always

If you're talking about your first screenshot above, no, you can't add shapes there. You can't do anything with the application at that point except: File > New, File > Open, or Edit > Paste, or drag/drop something on the window. You cannot add shapes, and you do not have any kind of "slate" to work on, until you have a document open. And it's always worked like that.
