A Workspace is a global template that stores the current UI configuration. and allow you to instantly adapt Cakewalk’s UI to only show elements that are relevant to a specific task or workflow. You can hide features you don’t want to see. Some workflows require access to many features, while other workflows benefit from a simpler and more focused UI. The selected Workspace remains active until you select another Workspace or disable Workspaces, and is applied to all projects.Cakewalk includes several factory Workspaces to get you started, and you can create your own custom Workspaces based on your personal preferences. Simply customize Cakewalk’s look and feel to suit your workflow, then save the configuration as a Workspace that can be recalled at any time. Be more productive and efficient by optimizing the UI for simplicity and speed.

Workspace. The Workspaces section contains the following controls:
Create new Workspace . Creates a new Workspace based on the current Workspace.
Workspaces. Lists all available Workspaces.
Save Workspace . Saves any changes to the current Workspace.
Delete Workspace . Deletes the current Workspace.
Show in GUI. Lists all features that can be disabled in a Workspace. Select the features you want to enable in the current Workspace.
Load from Workspace. Lists all settings that can be loaded by a Workspace. When you create a new Workspace, all current settings are initially saved with the Workspace. From there, you can clear any settings you don’t want to load when you select that Workspace. These settings also determine which settings are overwritten in the Workspace the next time the Workspace is modified. The options are as follows:Note: the Workspace only saves a reference to the theme name, so the theme must exist in order for the Workspace to load it. If the referenced theme file cannot be found, then the active theme will be used.
Window Layout. Load the saved window layout, including size and position. This option functions as a global screenset.
Track Control Manager. Load the saved Track view control configuration (visibility of Volume, Pan, Mute, Solo, Arm for Recording, etc.). When enabled, the Track Control menu button in the Track view shows [Workspace] to indicate that the track control configuration is inherited from the active Workspace. For details, see Configuring Track view controls and Track Control Manager.
