I use those features and views to get the info I need mostly. What I and James (thank goodness one other person so far :-), are saying is to see and USE some of the features across by simply having the panels one uses most to be able to stay open and docked. It would be more productive and for those who walk and chew gum can take care of things. I use two30" screens, I have plenty real estate to have my main image nice clutter free and large, while my grid view(scalable I hope) is on the second screen up against my panels. Is this some new radical ship in working? I have used such method since the day Matrox Dualhead video cards were available. Using large 24" Sony CRT or SUN monitors next to each other. Come on folks! Where you been? Did you just pick up a DSLR for the first time without ANY previous computer knowledge or experience?! !! Where is that WINDMILL!!!? Why are we so stuck to be accepting of what is fed to us? Is change so bad? Is Adobe THAT busy? They may as well lay off another 2K workers. WINDMILL PLEASE! :-)
You crack me up Tony...That is a good idiom(looked it up)!
I'm not saying anything bad. Nor am I saying anything radically different from what Adobe has done in the past to improve. As well as many other apps that are so strong as they remain Flexible to the users workflow.
I'm hoping to see a strong flexibility in the next release of LR v5. It should be coming out of its "safe and infant growth period" by v5. It is now 64xfaster, stable and rather fine tuned. I'm not saying for it to change as some apps do and commit suicide. These changes I speak of would be UNDETECTED for someone not looking for it. But can be opted to do so in Preferences. This makes an underlying power move. It would also cover its base on the workflow/User flexibility of other apps advantage.
What would you think I should learn in LR? What do you think I don't know?
(side notes:I tried the Solo mode again, and its time consuming. Slows me down.)
I'll also share with you what I didn't know of LR yesterday....I now see that it can handle more files than I initially thought.
Some features we don't use regularly and forget where they are, is not what I mean.
