Preserve UI Layouts
One of the bigger frustrations I have with AE comes up when I open a project created by someone else, and the AE UI converts to THAT person's layout. I can think of 0 instances in which that would be of any use.
I know I can go to Window->Workspace and call my saved layout back up, but why should I have to? Please change this behavior.

Came here to post this. It's not necessarily opening someone else's file, either--opening one of your own old files, where you'd used an earlier workspace layout, does the same thing. It would be great to have an option in prefs to toggle off the auto-loading of workspaces saved with files. Blender has this option, and it's great.
