check that your layout is 6.0 not 5.5. I believe PrP 6.0 remembers your last layout view.
Thanks, that worked.
PPro automatically imports the workspace layout from project files by default. All you have to do is select the new layout (the default one is just called "Editing"). If it still retains the old look, just select "Reset Workspace" and it'll revert to the default Editing workspace layout.
Glad to hear, Jason!
