Poor interface design

Can somebody from Adobe explain to me why you have engineers sitting around adding pointless and annoying features - I currently have turned off the main toolbar by mistake (which is WAY too easy) and am wasting time trying to restore it - while other important photo-editing features are hidden away in a dense thicket of menus, sub menus and esoteric icons? You guys need to learn some 'clean interface' design tips from your competitors or you will lose your market share, however big and powerful you are today

»You guys need to learn …«

And you might pay attention to who you are talking to. 

This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.

 

»I currently have turned off the main toolbar by mistake (which is WAY too easy) and am wasting time trying to restore it«

Window > Tools does not seem that hard to find so what are you trying to describe exactly?

I would recommend you set up a custom workspace (or two or three for specific tasks) to your liking. That way it is a very quick reset to restore all panels, toolbars, and even keyboard shortcuts the way you prefer them.

If you don't like the user interface of Photoshop and you have suggestions for improvement or wishes then feel free to post this into the Bug-/FeatureRequest forum https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html 

 

This is not the forum for feature requests.  Adobe doesn't monitor this forum for feature requests.
