Re: Making Workspaces Easier

I think what may be confusing is the name "Workspacees".

Create copy of registry settings.
Update copy of registry settings.
Restore registry settings from copy.
Delete copy of registry settings.

Might be more descriptive of what's actually happening. But to change it now would probably only serve to confuse current users.

I think the proposal below is excellent, but would appreciate feedback from the user community before I re-title the buttons on the
Launcher's Workspaces window and update the documentation to match.

Comments, concerns, and better ideas are welcome.

Subject: [dxlab] Making Workspaces Easier

Workspaces might be easier if the terms were more familiar to users:

Create Workspace   ---- >  New Workspace
Update Workspace   ---- >  Backup Workspace
Activate Workspace ---- >  Restore Workspace
Delete Workspace   ---- >  Delete Workspace

New, Backup, Restore and Delete are all terms that most users are familiar with. 

The mouseovers would provide additional details.

Just a thought. I've had trouble explaining Workspaces to other users, and it's indispensable.

Good DX and thanks!
