There would be too many separate layouts to cover all usage modes. Plus there is as yet no method to name layouts, so it is troublesome to remember which is which and what they do.xnview wrote:Why you don't use layout save/restore??
Yes, MP layouts are more "flexible" than 1.9x, but that is barely relevant to my use. Many here in the forum remember that it took years of testing and iterative design to get 1.9x to its current excellent state. It works the way I require it to, better than any other software. But at least for now, MP cannot be made to behave the way 1.9x does, so either I must change the way I work (not likely, and for what benefit?) or decline to use MP. The latter option is regretted because MP already has many new useful features.
For fluid use of MP there needs to be better flow between layouts and a more logical, simpler control over the visibility of the browser panels. That is why I suggested the specific improvements posted above (and in my PM to you).
For me, 1.9x better addresses my image workflow, so I have been trying to influence your efforts for MP toward the 1.9x design.
