Okay, I keep trying version 4, and I keep hating the interface, passionately.

Is there anyway to skin the current version with the earlier interface?

Yes, I’m about to search the forum again for info.

The biggest issue, is how much screen space the tabs take up on the screen, especially on a laptop that’s LCD tops out at 1366x768.
And yes, I’ve changed to the smaller text ‘Highway’,... “Nouveau Dark” isn’t available.
I don’t know about popularity of the interface types, but I preferred the one that was styled after Carrara, which I was trying to learn for a while.
That interface was much much more efficient IMHO.
Next biggest issue for me, is the layout of the content library, I was much more comfortable finding content in the old format.

Ideas anyone?

Have you tried the “Darkside” style?  That’s about as close as it gets…

Found a copy of the 64bit Pro version on a Magazine cover disc, will see what options are in there once I find a serial number,... sure I saw it in the forums last night.

You can pretty much configure DS4 to look the way you want it too. DS4 32bit and DS4 64bit are the same except for speed in the OS and Rendering. You can set it up so one window only has what you use. I have a Pose Window a Lighting Window a Parameters and Surfaces Window. Each window in its own tab right on the bar. It’s not hard to do. If I can anyone can.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I am NOT beating anybody. I am harmless. Really!
