Hi, Animate Community! I'm an old Flash user and back to make a project in Animate for the first time in a long while. I set up a custom workspace but don't see where I can save it, under Window>Workspaces. I just see an option to RESET to Classic, which is what I based my custom workspace off of. 

 

Referencing the internet, I see NEW WORKSPACE is under the menu above but I don't see it on my system. I read online that there is a "workspace switcher" but I can't find it. Is this switcher just the menu, under Window>Workspaces, above?

Hi mate, Yeah, in Animate 20 it's a button at the top-right of the application window which will pop a menu/dialog of sort that lets you manage your workspaces.

It would be ever so helpful if you'd post which version of Animate you're using.

I found a Workspace dialogue that lets me save a custom workspace. For me, it's up in the top right corner, on the same row as the home and Mac OSX Finder window controls, next to Test Movie.

it's a poor descision to make it impossible to create a custom workspace from the window>workspaces panel.

Adobe just changes the interface for the sake of change now. They create more problems then they solve.
