Old 'New Project' Dialogue much faster - here's why
We need an option to restore the old 'New Project' Dialogue box/window, not because we don't like change but because when software replaces OS-native dialogue boxes (open, save, new, import, export etc) OS-native shortcuts no longer work.
This creates endless pointing and clicking, the enemy of production! e.g. We should be able to create a new project and navigate with little to no pointing and clicking...
- CMD + N = New Project
- CMD + Down Arrow goes into a folder
- CMD + Up arrow goes up a folder
- Typing the first few letters of a folder name selects it
- Double-clicking a file auto-names the new project with the name of the double-clicked file
- Unified way of viewing the file system (icons, columns, lists etc) and their shortcuts etc
- Plus countless others= navigation shortcuts
We can't even hit CMD + N to create a new project! Isn't there someone at Adobe who understands why this is a problem? We choose an OS because of its native features which is why platform agnostic UX never works, it never delivers the OS features we want - right?
For example, Cinema 4D recently provided an option for OSX main menus instead of the platform-agnostic system used for decades. And now we get OX menu features like being able to search for any item in any menu.
If we want software that forces monolithic, proprietary workflows, we'll switch to Avid, Resolve or FCP. Please make sure you understand some of the reasons we stick with Premiere before changing stuff to see who complains.
Also, as a side note, why isn't every cent being spent on performance?
