Loooooooooooong time reader, first time post of community.adobe.com, though never read the "Creative Cloud Services" sub-category. I hope I'm in the right place. If not, that's more feedback for Adobe's community product team, because I'm fairly lost and their road signs are not helping.
How do we get these long-standing, suite-wide, site-wide UX issues resolved? How do we get them the kinds of feedback below?

Finally, addressing my original purpose for being here: How do we get to get every single product owner at Adobe to just respect the general Mac experience by agreeing that they will never break the three buttons ever: Close shall always close, minimize shall always minimize, and full screen will always go to true full screen, which creates a new desktop with only that full-sized app in it, and which will not even allow a different window to be created in it, as is the MacOS standard, like it or not. Unless the user goes into some preference to make it act different (which if you want to provide because you know your users like the option, then that's fine), and then it's on the user for breaking their own experience.
Thanks for your feedback. This community user-to-user forum software is leased from a 3rd party company. Adobe doesn't make it. Khoros is not perfect but the company responds to our feedback and requests for further improvements are tracked in a "To Do List" which Adobe management regularly shares with Khoros developers. So it's a work in progress.
For best results, go to the community overview page and select a product or service about which you have a question.
