User interface changes on its own?

My FM user interface seems to change (or reset) on its own so the panels on the right side I have customised are missing. I have now done the customization few times but it does not seem to stay. Previously I have saved my own interface but that does not restore my panels now. What might be ongoing here? How to ensure that user interface is not changing? I have not found ways or settings to fix this. Previously, over several years, this has not been occuring at all. Any ideas?

What version of FM? The fact that you've done customization a few times but doesn't seem to stay indicates that you probably don't have any rights to the folder where FM is trying to save your workspaces.

Hi @terhok:

 

Did you save the changes in the workspace list?

Yes. I have saved my workspace earlier. When this occurs, the right side area where the panels normally are is empty. And I cannot retrieve the earlier saved workspace either. The Jeff's idea of not having folder rights or folder/file missing for workspace saving could explain this but no access right changes should exist. Anyone know where workspace is saved?

The workspaces are saved here:

c:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\16\WorkSpaces\

Sometimes FrameMaker starts, and one of the pods is moved out of the pod area. Then I just reset the workspace and everything is fine again.

Did you save your workspace as Barb had said?
