Right now, in Photoshop and other programs (e.g. InDesign and Illustrator), the "Add to current library" option when saving swatches, placing vector graphics, or creating styles is checked by default (see image 1).
This is very annoying. I believe I speak for a large population of users who do not ever use the Library panel in Photoshop or Illustrator. The only time I use the Library panel is when creating Paragraph and Text styles in InDesign when working on multi-document books or across a team. However, Adobe insists on saving everything to the cloud library, and as a result I've got 30 generic "My Library" folders that I don't need (see image 2).
I know I'm not the only one who does not want to deal with managing this issue. If we don't use libraries and we don't need them, why make us use them? And I know you can just uncheck the box, but sometimes when you're cruising along, you forget. Besides this, when placing vector objects, forgetting to uncheck the box adds the vector to your library, has been known to slow performance, or, in some cases, crash the program.
I would like to see a "Use CC Libraries" option for custom Workspaces or something similar. This way we can have a custom Workspace which doesn't use the "Add to my current library" option regardless of whether we check or uncheck the box. Then if we really want to add something to a library, we can do it manually.
I just don't want to dedicate the time or attention to taking time out of my workflow to manage these unnecessary libraries. They're great when writing a book and creating logos, but when I'm retouching I don't want a new library created every time I place a vector logo for watermarking or when I create a swatch for painting.
