    Loving the NEW VS lay out and performance, but here are a couple things i find weird or not working properly on VS.

    1. Why would you put color and pattern banks in same window-tray for backgrounds? Took me a while to find these. It’s a lil confusing tbh, and the way you had these organized on VS2020 was perfect! Just saying.

    2. Other thing, some video effects or filters such as “CLOUD” do not respond or fit the NEW LAYOUT of VS. For example: I ‘am trying to customize cloud colors for every KEY entered in settings, the “pick color window is overlapped on top of the click up/down arrows in settings for that filter”. In other words, it’s Impossible to apply corrections or modifications as desired. That needs to be corrected, it’s silly but I use this filter-effect a lot.

    3. I rearranged VS UI/LAYOUT to fit my needs and saved it to custom #1 in layout settings. It won’t keep changes. Layout switches back to VS default layout in the middle of editing for unknown reasons and or simply won’t load saved custom changes when open application. It’s a nightmare because sometimes it can also keep on going back and ford between layouts. Ugh such a disappointment.

    4. The layout for NEWBLUE filters is a mess. It was clean, clear and neat on previous version of VS. The way it is right now hurts your vision, gets lost in a whole white background with no options to change it. Lay out lines are hardly visible and horribly put together this time. I’m sorry but it’s what it is. The Blue and Black layout was perfect before, made every application or settings buttons, boxes and such pop-out nicely and didn’t hurt your eyes. 🙁

    That’s all so far!

    Keep up the good work, make changes and correct defects, other users would appreciate.

    Thanks from a fellow VS user! I’ve used this video editing application for 20 years, I’ve seen its evolution and would love to see it grow and stronger than ever.
