It took me hours to build my workspace the way I needed. Now after an update on March 26th (2019), my workspace is completely gone. Not only undone. GONE.
I didn't press the TAB key or any other. I simply closed photoshop and when I opened it again (after the terrible update) the workspace was gone. Tried to change the workspace and come back, it doesn't work. Restart the workspace, no. Restart Photoshop, no.
And I thought that I should trust Adobe and that update would be a good thing. Won't be making that mistake again. Adobe keeps messing up the apps with update that only makes things worse. Now I have to spend hours to make things right again. Thank you Adobe for messing up with my workflow again. You can keep your messy updates to you now.
You should always have more that one version If Photoshop. Adobe Keeps on Updating Photoshop and adds new features and often introduces new bug in the process. Have an Old version of Photoshop installed that you can fall back on. In Case Adobe brakes something in Photoshop you depend on.
What level is your CC 2019 my install shows its is level 20.0.4 dated Feb 27, 2019 Creative Cloud desktop does not show me the is any newer Update available. If you saved you workspace as a new workspace it should be in your User ID Application data space for CC 2019 in folder
C:\Users\(your user ID)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings\WorkSpaces\
Did You save your Workspace ?
Make sure that after you rebuild your workspace to your liking that you save it. Had you saved it before you did the update?
I got the same problem. I saved my workspace long time ago. Request to have two versions of Photoshop at once is ridiculous. Why should I?
Isn't it the best image editing software in the world? It is, I agree. But why the heck can't it even save my preferences during update?
My guess is because they are monopolist and they really don't care so much as in the old days... It never happen before switching to "cloud" type of software (I use Photoshop since 5.0 version, yes, 5.0 not CS5 ;P).
Same experience. I chose 'save' at the prompt before upgrade to 2020 and it still didn't save my workspace. So irritating. Went back into the old versions folder as suggested by JJMack but they were all modified during upgrade. Will try to report it through proper channels when I have a chance but too irritated at the moment. And so I vent ... 😉
I have same issue, after upgrade my photoshop workspace is all messed up.
Photoshop opens up full screen, all tool panels are floating all over the place and will not go inside the photoshop window frame, very annoying, anyone know any fixes?
I HATE ADOBE - hate them with a passion !!
