    Avid Media Composer 2020.12 Workspace reset

    Hi All. 

     

    I am using an avid mediacomposer 2020.12 on a Mac Pro 2013. I love this new intreface and the featuer that I easily can change and modify the workspaces. Unfortunately the software randomly (every 2-4 days)  resets my setups on the defolt workspaces (edit, color, effects, audio) only keep the setups for the costum workspaces that I created. I obviously save the current settings every time I set them up and also testing it by changing the workspaces and restart the software. However it is still doing it. I am 100% sure that it is a bug in the software. So it is a really good feature but absoluutley useless if i have to set them up evry 2-4 days. 

    So my question is:

    1. Is there a way around, like a software update or som trick with the settings?

    2. if not, are there a way to delet the defult workspaces and use only costum ones? I like to keep my interface clean and not having anything usless? 

    3. Did anyone else met with similar issues?

    4. If I export my setting how can I rename it?

     

    Thank You all!!!

    So i've never had any issues, Lets start with the basics.. Have you re-built your user settings? I usually rectify these sorts of errors by doing that alone

    I have had the same issue, though not as regular as you. Basically the Edit, Effects, Color and Audio workspaces reset back to their default settings randomly.

    My workaround it is to have user added workspaces, which I've called Edit v2, FX v2, etc. It's not ideal, but it works for now.

    My experience is that this will happen if Avid sees - or thinks - that you've changed the display settings on the computer in any way. Why it only affects the default workspaces is a mystery, but at least setting up custom workspaces is a workaround.
