Essential Graphics: Default on "Edit" rather than "Browse"
Please let us see the Edit tab first when we arrive in Essential Graphics panel rather than Browse. 99% of the time, we use the panel for altering text, not browsing through templates.

Hi Scott -
In Pr, you can start a new graphic exactly the same way you do in AE - simply select the type tool and click in the Program monitor. You don't need to manually create a graphic - one is create automatically for you.

This 1000. Also for newbies or even when coming back to Essential Graphics after awhile its pretty opaque as to how to make an new title. It should just have a big plus button somewhere when you open it up that says add text or add title, but instead you have this little new page icon that is not at all obvious. Maybe a button for each item type instead of one button for them all.
I usually do stuff in After Effects but I was reminded today when using EG how backwards all of it seems at times.

YES! Oh, god, yes. Those thumbnails unnecessarily weight the performance down too.
