Yes, I tried th "solo mode", but it has been some time. I'll look to enable it.
Cold day in HELL!? That is rather extreme for an Option
that would increase efficiency
The reason people don't like panels/tools in Photoshop is because they don't know what half of them do. They are overwhelmed...
This is NOT what Photoshop suffers from. Its some users not comfortable in PS that suffer from. Adobe Acrobat and InDesign, (the others I often use) suffer from this? Well maybe you should be asking for an OPTION to lock these panles in some cohesive way you see fit. That would be a sollution, not to go a$$ backwards and do the same assanign thing on the opposite end of the spectrum!
I generally enjoy and often agree with you on many discussions of quality (I think I remember much dialogue in MF Db and maybe C1 sections).
I'm not a noob, I processed my E6 films, 8x10 baths, plenty others for years, but I am the last person to say it is MY way or a Cold Day in Hell. Complacency is the root of degradation. That just sounds like fear of the unknown...rather unwilling to know...because "the unknown" is something we actually know and see it within LR just about everywhere...it is called having the option
. Imagine you DIDN'T have a DUAL screen option. Just becasue it is supposed to be called and extension, doesn't mean it can't be scaled. It surely wouldn't take a Fletcher glass cutter to trim that window down. And if someone wants to have panels unlocked, they should be able to go into preferences to enable panles to unlock. Then another step that would allow you to move panels.
Maybe you can Schewe it off as "Not a priority", but to lock it for a cold day in hell is rather ridiculous. If I'm not mistaken, you consulted with LR developing. Maybe I have you mixed up with someone else. But I think they would be making a rudimentary mistake if they don't imply such options in the future.
Lets make a list: Besides support for the next favorite camera...What upgrades would you see LR make?
- Slider keys a bit larger? I can see the need for that.
- Allowing the list of Keywords to be added into a Keyword preset?(Is this already there and I don't see it?)
- Custom background colors to decode between Lib and Dev and other modes?
- Better processing
- Lens correction with lume (ala C1)?
Those would be MY suggestions besdies the scaling 2nd window and the Panels docking
Maybe LR was designed for folks who didn't know how to use photoshop. Great or professional photographers not knowing Photoshop, but needed to switch to digital. Maybe that was the root of the software. Fine. But make no mistake, that scope of LR users has changed VERY DRASTICALLY with in the last 3-4 years. So giving the option would not only satisfy the folks that are set in their ways, vs those that welcome options....better yet, demand it.
