In the Premiere Pro CC November 2015 release, all the default workspaces have been revised. In addition, two new workspaces have been added: Titles and All Panels. The Titles workspace presents the Titling tools in a right-side column of stacked panels, with the Title Designer in the same frame as the Program monitor. Every panel is open in the All Panels workspace.
The new default workspaces may only be visible if the application was installed on a clean system (no previous Premiere user folder in the configuration) or after the Layouts folder is manually deleted, then automatically restored by the application.
Similarly, if you use Sync Settings, the older default workspaces in your settings files will
overwrite the new workspaces. To use both the new default workspaces and preserve your custom workspaces, do the following:
- Make sure that your custom workspaces do not use the same name as any of the default workspaces. If required, rename and save them with custom names if required.
- Make sure the preference to Import workspace from project (Window>Workspaces submenu) is toggled on.
- Save a Premiere project with your custom workspace in use (selected). If you have more than one custom workspace, create a separate project for each of these other custom workspaces.
- Copy the current Layouts folder as a backup in case you need to revert.
- Delete the Layouts folder (this folder will be re-created with the new default workspaces the next time you launch Premiere Pro).
- Launch Premiere Pro. You should now see the new workspaces.
- Open the project you saved with your custom workspace in use. It is imported and made available along with the new default workspaces.
- If you had more than one custom workspace, open the other projects. Each of those custom workspaces is also imported.
