This one’s for you, Photoshop fans.
As you know, Photoshop is now a subscription, not a product. Adobe keeps updating this program steadily throughout the year—and you keep paying for it throughout the year.
But not all of the changes are satisfactory ones. For example, the latest Photoshop version introduces a new New Document dialog box. Let’s say I want to create a new document. Hey, it could happen.
I select New, or I hit command-N, & then—I wait. For this really baffling, really slow box to appear. I just want to obtain going!
I’m not the only one whining; a lot of people wish they could obtain the speedy old box back. And a lot of people aren’t aware that you can. In Preferences, just turn on the jargonically named “Use legacy ‘New Document’ interface.”
And boom: The old box is back. The time you save could be your own.
