With every major release of Camtasia and SnagIt. There’s a new User Interface and a different layout. It takes time and effort to learn where things are. This requires invested man hours. Time is money.
Adobe’s had fully customizable UI’s for as long as I can remember. This alleviates the problem of learning new UI’s. Why, because you can stick to the old UI if you wish. You can even create a layout that’s exactly as you always felt it should be. Then, save it as a custom workspace.
Quick Example, Adobe’s Premier Pro can be converted to function a lot like Camtasia 9.
I borrowed the left side Menu Bar and Top Ribbon from Camtasia 9. Pasted it over Premiere Pro CC 2017. Other than that, it’s all Adobe. “Obviously, PP didn’t have those available”
You can dream up any configuration. Even against all norms. If it works for you, you can have it.
You can have floating or docked windows, the sky’s the limit. I'll end this post with these examples and a footnote.
I’m sure some of the “Floating Windows and Tool-sets” were quite different back in1989 / 1993. Plus, I had a hard time finding any decent screen shots of Photoshop from 25 years ago.
However, Photoshop and Premier Pro from 2005 were more obtainable.
SO, if someone started using Premiere Pro and Photoshop way back in 2005. Plus, still preferred using the default layout from back then. Would it be possible in 2017?
Well, I’ll let you be the judge.
