What is a Workspace?
Workspaces are saved, preset arrangements of panels in Adobe programs. This short video explains how to switch between them, customize them, then save your own.
You will find all panels (and saved Workspaces) in the Window menu. Panels can be collapsed or expanded to different sizes. Clicking the name/icon for a panel reveals/hides it again.
Dragging a panel into the panel ‘dock’ makes it more accessible. Once you’ve customized the workspace to your liking, go to Window > Workspace > New Workspace to save it.
