I haven't installed the new version yet but the work space reset thing WAS mentioned in the release notes. It said because they introduced the new motion graphics work space they had reset the workspace settings. As for the crash I can't say.
If you were me you would wait to install new versions and read all the info you can find on new releases. But, you're not me
You're smart guy!
I think, that should have been mentioned somewhere in a more visible place, rather than in 'release notes' that I think not that many people read often and carefully.
It wasn't actually release notes. I said that out of habit. I think it was in the realease video blog on the region of interest page Adobe After Effects CC | Creative Cloud blog by Adobe . I agree most people don't read release notes...& I think those people should "take it more carefully".
That's an odd crash. Has it happened more than once?
Just had the same thing - lost all render settings, output modules, layouts - everything. Sync settings says there are no saved settings on my account (although there definitely were)
This isn't changing version, just an update within CC 2017 that I was using before.
There goes a morning setting all this up again. Thanks Adobe
Sorry about this issue. If it is still occurring to you in the current version, please let us know.
