Not tool specific. Things like grids, image interpolation, ect.
I want to have a workspace specifically for pixel art, and do not want to have to reset all of the general preferences when I want to create a pixel art file. Is there a way to save the general settings?
You do that by choosing Window - Workspace - New Workspace..., which allows you to name the settings you currently have.
To save an updated version under the same name you do Window - Workspace - New Worspace... again and use the same name. Yes, that's not very straightforward.
When I saved the new Workspace (Pixel Art), and reload my normal Workspace (Dana Standard), it saved the menu locations, but not specific tool presets nor anything under the General Preferences, like Grids, etc. This is CS4, btw.
As a test, I saved the new workspace (Pixel Art) with grid settings at 8pixels/8subdivisions. I then quit photoshop. I relaunched, and the 8/8 settings remained. When I reloaded my usual Workspace (Dana Standard), the menus changed, but all of the Photoshop general preferences remained the same, including the 8/8 grid settings.
All of this means that Workspace does NOT save General Preferences.
Noel, when I save the Workspace, it only gives me three things to select and save:
...none of these are part of PS General Preferences.
