InDesign CS6, Windows 7:
File/Open gives me this:
Notice there are no 'Favorites' on the left. I have to 'browse' for my file each time. I have a ton of files on the network, and it takes several clicks to get to them. Annoying when I'm opening several files a day. The 'Recent Places' isn't too helpful here either.
Now look at what happens in InDesign CC, Windows 7 with a File/Open:
Look at all the 'Favorites' and easy browsing on the left side. Why are the 'Open a File' dialog boxes so different in CS6 and CC? I want the CS6 'Open' dialog to be just like the CC one. (I prefer to use CS6, CC is buggy on my system.)
It is what it is....
What it is... is cumbersome and un-necessary. Every other program in Windows (even Word Pad) opens with the 'standard' dialog with Favorites on the left. Why did Adobe program it differently? There has to be a fix in Preferences or something...
I don't know what kind of help you expect. The dialog is what it is, and CS6 is "feature complete" and not going to change, so we ALL have to live with it.
