    Is this for Painter Essentials 6? It shows Painter Lite but I’m not sure if that’s that same thing. I have Painter Essentials 6 but I don’t find anywhere on the menu or preferences that mentions how to select workspaces. I did a course in for the regular Painter as they didn’t have Essentials 6 that showed Workspaces under the Window menu item. I went under the Window menu item but there was no Workspace selection. I would like to save a Workspace but I’m not sure if I can in Painter Essentials 6.

      Hello vgmiller,

      That is correct – Painter Essentials 6 does not currently support different Workspaces. That said, we appreciate the feedback, and have passed your suggestion on to the Painter team for their consideration.
