The new arrowed crosshair icon I find too large and cumbersome for such a small area of the screen. The old pointed cursor made accurate locating far easier. And the new zoned areas of the ruler also require very careful movements of the mouse - many times I accidentally click on the upper cycle half of the ruler, when I mean to click on the lower half for locating. And vice versa. On a completely separate but equally irritating issue… the new window layout options that pop up when you click on the edges of the screen are driving me mad. Most of us have shortcuts to show/hide the windows we need, so there should at least be an option in preferences to disable this new behavior.
The above are my only complaints about 8.5, the rest of the new features are well welcomed, i’m just mildly irritated by these minor annoyances that disrupt fast and fluid workflow instead of supporting it.
