Preserve UI Layouts

One of the bigger frustrations I have with AE comes up when I open a project created by someone else, and the AE UI converts to THAT person's layout. I can think of 0 instances in which that would be of any use.

I know I can go to Window->Workspace and call my saved layout back up, but why should I have to? Please change this behavior.

Came here to post this. It's not necessarily opening someone else's file, either--opening one of your own old files, where you'd used an earlier workspace layout, does the same thing. It would be great to have an option in prefs to toggle off the auto-loading of workspaces saved with files. Blender has this option, and it's great.

I 100 million percent agree. This is a constant frustration. I am always updating my workspaces as I get new tools or find new workflows. Even opening up old projects with old workspaces can take forever as it struggles to change the whole layout, then inevitably change it all back once I switch it to my workspace I want. There should be a setting to decide this. I would much rather have everything always open to my most up to date default workspace, whether it is an old project of mine or someone else's. Please give us that option.

Yes, any option to avoid this would be grand.

This need to happen like right now Adobe! I have a workspace customized for wide screen with tons of scripts, resetting that takes time to load or the scripts everytime! One time AE crashed while doing this! U need to add an option to turn on/off this importing other workspaces option, urgently!

NUKE has the feature in preferences to open the file with the saved workspace, the default, or a specified workspace.

This has saved me when a workspace has issues or a render is throwing a stall. I open a blank project, set it to open a text-only layout (like the project window) and then save and open the file giving me problems.

I forget this is NUKE; then go digging through the AE preferences to remember it is not in AE.

IMO any app that has workspaces or saved layouts should have this capability from day one.
