Hi, just started using the trial of X4 and still exploring however, something that's got me confused and can't find an answer for:
When I'm working in Edit mode, if I have an image open, I can't go across to Manage mode without it wanting to save or close out the image I'm currently working on. I've had issues with the 'organiser' since it's inception and have to admit to preferring the 'browse' as a minimisable window within the normal workspace as it used to be in the Jasc days of psp 9 and below, i.e. I had control over it. However, I compromised on that in X3 by setting the Organiser as a toggle in the top right corner set to thumbnails since I really don't like it cluttering up my workspace. That option, to toggle between the organiser and the workspace is gone..well, sort of gone I guess, changed is a better word. Now we 'should' be able to toggle between 'edit' and 'manage' tabs according to the advertising to achieve the same thing, but of course with the program wanting to close out my multi-layered image first, that's not an option either.
I find it more than annoying to my workflow to have the organiser in the bottom of the workspace and, the necessary 'navigation' menu on the left, even when they are set to roll away when not in use since they will pop open if I even go near them and that really is quite annoying.
So, I guess my question is, why can't I have an image open in 'edit' and successfully move between edit and manage screens?
A couple other things I've found so far... the 'mirror image' command is gone from the Image menu...? Also, when I close out the program and then reopen it, the colour style box and last font used have changed. Likely there are other things along that track that are also resetting themselves but as I said, I'm still experimenting with it.
On the plus side, I'm thrilled that the pixel loss problem was fixed when 'pasting as a new selection'! that was such a bugbear in X3.
Hoping someone has an answer for the edit/manage problem?
