I cannot figure out the way to disable the Properties Panel.  I don't want to use it, ever.  I've tried closing the panel and saving as a new Workspace, but everytime I do something like double click a text layer it automatically pops up again LOL.

This was bugging me, too.  I just noticed there's a button on the toolbar to switch the Properties panel on/off, as well as a checkbox to keep it from auto-opening. The options appear on the toolbar when I select a shape layer.

I do not see the problem in AE Beta or AE 23.4. Select Properties, press Ctrl/Cmnd + w to close, double click a footage or solid layer, and the layer panel is selected; double click a text layer, and all the text is selected; double click a shape layer, and the layer is selected.

Thanks for that...hadn't seen the On/Off button.  Unfortunately, it appears to have an odd behavior.  Try this:

 

1. New comp.  Add a text layer.  Double click the layer to edit the text.  Properties Panel appears. 

2. Turn it off and uncheck Auto Open Panel.
3. Add another text layer and double click to edit.  The Property Panel stays hidden.  So far, so good.
4. Add a shape layer.  The Properties Panel appears.
5. Select any of the two text layers.  The panel stays on, lol.  It doesn't remember that I switched it off for that layer (or a unique layer type).

Looks like you have to switch it off for every unique layer type you add to your comp.  Not a big deal, and I'm grateful for the on/off button, but c'mon...

I'd pay $50 for a plugin that gets the Properties panel auto-show behavior out of my life. It is breaking my workflow.

I am not seeing this button to turn it off, holy smokes can I please get rid of this panel forever. I am utterly annoyed with yet another update that I will never use. My current solution is to drag it to a display I don't use and ignore it as best I can.

The Properties Panel should NOT behave different than any other panel in the software, that's basic UI/UX design that Adobe developers need to learn. The option to "Auto open" should not exist. The user should decide if they want it open or not. Another unecessary thing to justify Adobe's subscription model.

They're trying to force his use. In fact, they're trying to force users to work in the same way, making a good thing into a friendly but useless one. Working on ae over 25 years, there's a lot of things to improve before make it friendly to ocassional tutorial's followers.
