Learn Corel PaintShop Pro X4: Workspaces

Corel PaintShop Pro X4 consists of three workspaces: Manage, Adjust and Edit; each one of these workspaces consists of palettes, toolbars, and open images (there are not open copy of your images; if you delete the original image from your computer, the image will disappear from the workspace).

If you don't like the default aspect of the workspaces, you can create your own custom workspaces:

1. Saving a custom workspace. When you save a workspace, Corel PaintShop Pro X4 saves the following informations: ruler, grid, and guide informations, menu, palettes and toolbar settings, locations, docking status, full screen edit mode status, open images, including zoom levels and scroll bar locations. In order to save the current workspace, choose File -> Workspace -> Save (or you can use the following Short key: Shift + Alt + S), type a name in the New Workspace Name field, and click on Save. If your workspace contains any modified images that you have not saved, you are prompted to save the changes to your image. It would be better to use a relevant name for your workspace, especially if you are sharing the computer with other persons.

2. Loading a custom workspace. Once you've saved a workspace you can load it everytime you need it. Go to File -> Workspace -> Load or press Shift + Alt + L and the Load Workspace dialog box appears. Choose one of the following options: Yes if you want to save the current workspace before loading another one or No if you don't want to save the current workspace before loading another one. Next: select the workspace you want to load and click on the Load button.

3. If you no longer want to use a saved workspace, you can delete it - File -> Workspace -> Delete (or Shift + Alt + S), select the name of the workspace you want to delete and press the Delete button
