In L3 I used to save an updated workspace by choosing its name from the list (usually it was the default, so I didn't have to choose anything, just answer yes when asked if I want to overwrite).

In L4 all I can figure out is to save the current snapshot by typing in the name again (and hoping I don't make a typo so that I end up with two similar named layouts and have to figure out which one to delete).  Is there a better way to save a layout that has changed since the last time I worked in it?

Unfortunately no - we were even told this was easier - go figure....

May I join this choir?* Please Logos make this procedure more obvious.

*They won't let me in the real choir at our Church, so I have to join ones in the forums Geeked

C'mon... a "save button" at least!

I know I'm just repeating myself because I still have so many posts to go to reach 2000 Big Smile, but we need a right click overwrite option.

Or drag the current (or any other) layout over the name of the layout you want to update.

Or a simple popup window that informs us / asks us:

"Do you want to overwrite the current Layout_x  YES / NO?"

It ain't rocket science! Huh?

I agree. It would also be nice to know what layout you're currently in. Perhaps the name of the layout displayed somewhere. Or if the layout is not named it would be displayed as "Untitled" or something.

ditto with me.  I recently misspelled a word and created two layouts, one "prayer and devotion" the other "prayer and devoition."  A save button would be nice . . . or some simplification.

also--I have searched the help file, but I can't figure out an easy way to wipe the windows away.  Is there?  Currently I have to "x" out each window.  Am I missing something?  This comes up when I want a clean slate to build a new workspace . . . ahhhh, "layout."  :)

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I just have a blank layout saved and in my shortcuts, this clears everything out

You could just type close all in the command box.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Also, if you type close all, you may drag-drop that option (from the auto-complete drop-down menu) into your shortcuts bar, looks like it needs an icon too, nice find you two Smile

I always have a problem with typing close all for some reason and I forget to go to the shortcut bar for it so i tested something out. I closed everything done, saved the layout as CA. Then whenever I typed CA into the command line it closes everything down. Now ALT+D CA closes everything rather then having to type it out.

It must be the paws.  They don't handle the keyboard as well as the mouse.

I think you might be right. Logos, could we please institute barking commands? One bark closes everything, Two barks opens my favorite Bible and it needs to ignore whimpers because that's how people know I need to be let out. This would really be beneficial to me.

thanks for the tips.  I didn't figure out that command.  I tried looking under "close all panes" and "close panes" in the help file.  didn't see anything.  Now I know!

In an international manner I assume - Australian blues for me but I'm sure we have a need for Yorkshire, German, Peking ...

This gets my vote.
