Want to ask? Workspace

Wanted to ask Flexi users if thay use a "Workspace " lay out other than "Default" setting? And if so what advantages if any do you think you get?

We use the default because that is what we learned on but if we had worked in another program extensively we would probably use that workspace, for example I have a friend who uses the Corel workspace because they started there first with T Shirts/screen printing and because the still use Corel. Familiarity is the main advantage I can see to the workspace feature.

I use the default. It's what I'm used to using. I seem to recall also, that when I experimented with a couple of them, that some Flexi commands were left out of some workspaces.
I think it is there to ease transition from a different software.

For example when we purchased Flexi, we were still using Inspire, and after a week of frustration, I uninstalled Flexi and continued to use Inspire for several months. Then one slow day I was looking at the Flexi manual and saw the workspace option, so I reinstalled Flexi, changed it to the Inspire workspace, and wow, it was easy to use. Now I have switched over to the default environment.

(This is the the same post I put on the other site)
I only ask because, A screen printer we use, upgaded from Casmate to Flexi and had ask me to show him somethings.
He said he HATED Flexi,
I said that cause your use to another program, when I went to his shop I all most didn't how to use it my self ( he had set the workspace to Casmate and it was all most unrecognizable to me ) & sents have tried other workspaces.
I guest it's what your used to!

To Fred: I found that lot ,too Thanks

I tried to change it to mimic Illustrator but I felt it fell way short of doing so. I believe some features of Flexi became "hidden" if you will and is more of a pain to work with then the default setting. I think it is more of a transitional phase for people to ease into, but find it more difficult to do so that way.

I used the casmate workspace for a while, but I ended up customizing it a little from there.. then I had to re-install the software (changed computers)... had to customize all over again... the changed computers again... figured out if I just learn it from the default setting... I can always get it back exactly like I'm used to (once I am used to it)
