It was bad enough with just Designer and Photo with the mixed up menu listings but now with Publisher in the mix it is beyond just frustrating. Could we please have the section of View > and all the managers organized the same? Also Photo has an Assistant Manager but no menu item for choosing it. And pleas could we have some consistancy with the location of the Studio > item. And the whole View Point items too.

        Designer
1    Assistant Manager ...        
2    Guides Manager ...    
3    Snapping Manager ...    
4    Grid and Axis Manager ...    
5    Apple Colour Picker ...

    Baseline Grid Manager ...    Unique
3    Snapping Manager ...    
5    Apple Colour Picker ...    

        

Edited to fix the list for Photo. Plus noting that Publisher does not have an assistant.

The Windows versions of Photo have View > Assistant Manager. If you don't have it on Mac I'd report that as a bug.

A one-size-fits-all approach is wholly wrong in my view. We're talking about a tool for those who work in publishing and as such it should reflect the terminology users are familiar with and not use terms that might be alien to them. Functionality is the important thing.

The View menu could do with a tidy up though as there's no consistency.

I guess that was some sort of willful blindness on my part. I shall now attempt to edit my original post.
