First, apologies if this is a total noob/duplicate question.
I work in a lot of different files and like to have many panels open across multiple monitors so that I can view all the information I need quickly. What would be great is if I could just save a sweet layout and then crack open files all day without constantly re-adjusting panels all over the place.
I have tried [Maya 2014 (SP4 x64)]:
[li]Window->Save Current Layout… - Only seems to affect the layout of panels anchored in the main window.
[/li][li]Using windowPref command - File is saved but read has no effect. Should this be doing what I want?
windowPref -sms test01 windowPref -rms test01
[li]Last resort is set Preferences->UI Elements: Keep current layout/don’t restore from file. Then setup panels every time I boot Maya but that really sucks.
Am I missing something? Surely it must be pretty common to want this workflow right?!? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
