Why do Timelines Close and Reorder when Switching Workspaces?

More often than not, when I switch to a new workspace, the timelines that I had open change order. 
Even worse, some of them close. 
And when I go back to my Editing Workspace, it happens again.

For me, switching between Workspaces contantly shifts and changes which timelines I have open. 

I want to use Workspaces, but when I do, they very often mess-up my flow.

Does anyone know why this happens? And possibly how to fix it?

Yes, I struggle with that problem for years. Try that: save a workspace with specific sequences opened, change the workspace, and then reload the saved one: Premiere will restore those perfectly. So, It looks like Premiere Pro is saving opened sequences with saved workspace, and whenever you load the workspace in another project it searches for the specified sequences in it, and if it didn't found those it will replace them with sequences from the project panel, and then everything will look messy.

That's why if you want to switch between two workspaces while working on a project, just save the workspace before switching, this way you will restore it perfectly

Hi John, I've been experiencing the exact same issue I believe. I tried Ali_Jaber's solution which did not fix it for me. Have you found a solution or workaround?

Sorry, no, I haven't. I just learned to live with it.
I guess Adobe doesn't think that some editors will have more than one sequence open at a time.

And I guess they're right. Still, I don't get why this reordering takes place.

"Something" in the code is "deciding" what to show after one changes workspaces so I would think it would be an easy fix, but there's probably not that much demand for it.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves about Premiere. I am constantly working on 4-5 sequences at a time. Usually they are variations of the same video. I need to easily move between all sequences in different workspaces to copy and paste elements and colorgrading. Adobe...please give us a solution to this slow torture of a workflow.

Exactly the same for me. I do local TV commercials and I almost always have 5 different lengths open at the same time. I just wound up changing workspaces as little as possible.
