Option for temporary prefs reset
On more than a few occasions I've needed to check and see if my workspaces have been contributing to issues that arise in the public beta. The official way to reset all my prefs is to launch the app while holding
- Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows)
- Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS)
This works but it completely obliterates all my prefs custom workspaces forever. I currently go to that folder and make a copy before doing this but that eats up time and is a pain. I'd like to have a temporary option to load the app with default preferences (perhaps by holding z with the above shortcuts) that restores my previous prefs when I launch the app as normal.

I think a Safe Mode is a great idea but I'd be cheating myself if I didn't also request for a Beast Mode :glowcat-parrot:and a Preferred Mode which would be a user-selected set of Prefs that has worked best and and suggested by the user via Sync Settings.

Kyle Hamrick just called it "Safe Mode for AE" and I'm so mad I didn't think of that. It's a perfect description of what I'm going for here.
