You are probably right - and it is difficult to see for longterm users. Do you think of newbie versions for all or some workbenches? Or do you think about a basic "Newbie Workbench" which contains only basic functions? What should be in such a workbench?
The problem I see is that maybe the workbench concept makes sense from the developer point of view but maybe the final user should not care about that...
I am sorry I did not have the time to go over that thread. I will have to find the time to go over the 7 pages available. Wow, that thread is going fast.
Could be. But looking at the image (as somebody that newer used it) i am not exactly sure what button i would press first. Therefore i don't know if such UX is trying to addressees the "new user friendly approach"? It expects some prior knowledge for it to start making sense?
