I just got a new machine and have no access to my previous saved workspaces. Seems like a pretty basic feature to have, and a timesaving one.

You can save a workspace by >
> click on the workspace name on the top right of the screen
> click New Workspace
> type in name of existing workspace (in my case “Keith-Desktop” or “Keith-Laptop” as appropriate)
> "A workspace with that name already exists. Do you want to replace it?"
> click OK
This would be SO much simpler and SO much discoverable with a menu option there "Save Workspace."
P.S., these workspaces reside in something like this (on my Windows laptop and desktop) C:\users\kcono\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\18.0\en_US\Workspaces and you can synchronize them with a utility such as GoodSync, which I have used for decades and dearly love. It allows me to both back up things like my workspaces and synchronize things such as the Adobe user dictionary so that whether I'm working away from home on my laptop or at home on my high-end PC workstation, I always have the latest dictionary entries in my dictionary: C:\Users\kcono\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Linguistics\UserDictionaries\Adobe Custom Dictionary\en_US.
