It seems like selection zoom has been removed entirely. I mean, seriously? Whose bright idea was this? I HATE scrubby zoom, and don't want to be forced to use it.
Adding to zoom issue, other really annoying changes for me;
- Zooming out using the cursor used to do zoom out in stages, now it zooms to the whole window.
- Creating a new adjustment brush should reset all the values to zero.
- Bring back the + and - to either size of each value for quick increases and decreases
- Scrolling the mouse wheel should move the film strip along to the right, currently you have to click and slide the slider
- Can't zoom at all when using adjustment brush or spot removal, can only pan by holding the space bar. You have to switch back to the edit tab in order to zoom which is crazy.
I'm honestly not sure that whoever is in charge of making changes to Camera RAW has ever actually used the program. Why remove useful features? They've fixed a couple issues on the latest update, but a lot of the old functionality is still gone. Hopefully the old version doesn't stop working.
"Why remove useful features?"
Why are you asking end users, in a user to user support forum a question they cannot answer?
You want to address or ask Adobe? It's done here:
That's a good point, but I'm not hopeful that the comments get heard. I've just rolled back to the previous version of Camera Raw, Bridge and Photoshop and will wait it out.
They are not getting heard here to affect any changes.
There's actually no option to make comments on Camera Raw on that wishform link...
You do so through the Photoshop team and the option there!
There's no option HERE to comment to the Photoshop or ACR Team; this is AGAIN, a forum for users, staffed by users for support. You rolled back, that's all you can do here. Had you been unaware HOW to roll back to the last version, we could have assisted you in that goal.
There is also this post and site you can go to:
Official Adobe reply about the NEW UI:
"At this time, Adobe is not planning to revert the UI to the 12.2.1 state nor are there plans to offer both interfaces as an option in the future. That said, we are determined to fix bugs and improve workflows within the new user interface."
It wasn't so much "asking end users questions they cannot answer," as it was commiserating with others having the same issues. As you posted, Adobe doesn't plan to change it back, but there is at least some catharsis in seeing that other users are dealing with the same frustration.
"It wasn't so much "asking end users questions they cannot answer,"
That's the role of THESE forums; user to user support.
Do you have a support question for other users here? If not, move on.
There is no support here for your frustrations.
