Hi Paul,

I see why you're frustrated!

Early last year, we conducted a card sort usability test with users to determine the most logical order for all of our Editor menu items, but we didn't run a similar user test on the Capture window menu items. So, that's probably why the Preferences options are found in separate menus between the two (and also why various preference-related items are found across multiple menus, as Damian pointed out).

We'll look at making these more consistent and reducing some of those redundancies in a future release. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

For anyone else that is curious like I am, here is a link describing what this "card sort" test is.
