    Media Compposer 2019.6 Workspaces always reset themselves

    I have actually used workspaces for probably 15 years, so the new version was kind of a step sideways for me, and actually backwards - I'll explain.  When 2019.6 came out I started with new settings for the first time in probably a decade.  I modify the stadard Edit, Audio, Effects and Color workspeces to suit my own needs (as I have done for 15 years or so except that this time I used the preconfigured workspaces as a starting point).  I also made a couple others which show up underneath.  I have 2 version of my settings: one for my 2560 x 1440 screens (dual monitor) and then I duplicated these settings and renamed them as a 1080 version of the same (for use when I remote in and use a dual 1920x1080 montitor setup from home).  The layout is slightly different to reflect the different screen realestate.  I've noticed however that both sets of setttings keep reverting to the standard default layouts for each of the Edit, Audio, Effects and Color categories.  I've already remade these TWICE.  These are clearly supposed to be modiable and indeed are for a few days and then just randomly switch back.  Is this a bug?  Does anyone else see this happening?  Thanks for any good ideas.

    Hi, Are you using “Save Current” before exiting a Modified workspace?

    Did you create a new user setting for 2019.6? That is mandatory.

    Yes.  And, like I said, the settings remain as I want them to be for several days.  Thanks for the response.

    I haven’t had any issue like that.

    Perhaps it is your custom-naming convention? Can you provide an example of it? Say the 2 custom Edit Names? 

    I’ve done numerous custom WS’s, but none include the words EDIT, COLOR, EFFECTS,AUDIO . I’m basically ignoring the Defaults, anyway. But I have not been opening up a variety of old projects, either.

    maybe re-install MC?

    So I haven't changed the name of those default workspaces.  The 2 that I've added are called Capture and Output.  I went with the ones they'd already prepare party because it seems you can't change the location of where those are in the workspace UI and I wanted them at the top.  I also map them to my keyboard and don't want a ton of workspaces since you're stuck with the ones they have pre made as the 1st 4 so I figured I just modify those.

    Re: Media Compposer 2019.6 Workspaces always reset themselves

    I've not modified the default workspaces. I use my own and these have been stable since I created them. This makes me wonder if the default workspaces are resetting themselves (and there is an option to reset the workspaces back to their defaults).

    One thing I have notices is sometimes the panels are not always the same size as I set them. Clicking on the workspace name puts them back to the correct size.

    Another thing is if you have a panel open (say it's your bin container) and it's floating in some workspaces but docked in others, when you switch to a docked workspace and then to a floating one, the panel tends to stay at it's largest size, and not the size it was saved at in the ffloating workspace.

    I have modified the Edit, Color and Effects workspaces, and occasionally have the behavior you describe above. Flipping betwwen workspaces (again) usually resolves it.

    Thanks for this Keith.  I have seen the reset option and avoid that.   I tried clicking on the workspace to no avail.  Also flipping between them doesn't seem to work.  Looks like a complete reset of all of them.

    I've contacted Avid support so I'll update with anything that works from them.  My suspicion is that it's something to do with the fact that I have 2 sets of setting, one duped from the other, or just a bug of some kind.  Thanks again!

    My bet is the settings are the issue.  Let me see if I can find your case and get it handled.

    This is possible, but I did create all new settings for 2019.6, so it's not a case of porting old settings here that's creating the inconsistencies in switching between workspaces.

    I contacted Avid support and this was their suggestion:

    Did you try to reset Avid Media Composer settings and create a new user profile
    Move the MCState, Site_Attributes and Site_Settings files to another location (eg. a new folder on the desktop). After moving them, see if the issue is still present.
    You can find those files following this path -> C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer\Settings
    I've done this (yesterday) and haven't had my settings reset themselves yet.  However this was something that was happening (apparently) randomly every few days, so we'll see...

    I also created brand new settings.  The factor that I'm wondering about is that I have 2 sets of settings (for 2 different screen resolutions - depending on where I am working).  One set is made from duping and renaming the other and then reconfiguring the workspaces.
