...As i notice earlier, I just provide my personal feedback and fresh lookup....
I agree and think that this a very good thing to do, and I appreciate that input.
Seems to me that you have a lot of experience with many different programs, so you've seen different solutions to common problems and have a feeling for the "usual" way to solve things. So everything you notice now and mention here, while you're new to the program, are hints where it is somehow "unusual" or less pretty than possible. Once you got used to PL you will hardly notice these tiny things anymore.
Just don't put too much work into it. It's nice when you enjoy creating some sketches, but don't be disappointed if they are not taken into account. The general appearance is a topic that is mentioned quite regularly by new users, and so are such suggestions.
I basically agree with you, but ...
It needs some synthesis and organization.
I have a hard time to read and evaluate 40+ posts in less than a week. With a mix of wishes, preferences, corrections, etc ...
I believe usability debate will last forever. And will never make all users satisfied.
Users also need stability. Let's avoid changes that bring marginal advantages.
Let's avoid adding options and cursors that will complicate UI some more, if they are useful only once in a while.
I would prefer discussing new features, rather than spend lengthy discussions about preferences.
What about frequency separation, focus stacking, image alignment, HDR stacking, etc ... just as an example.
Lastly, it is the developer's duty to keep all this coherent and in line with their vision.
I believe they did well so far. Even if think we are reaching limits in complexity with some of the features.
Image management is complex. Software is there to make it efficient. Not to make it more complex.
Very best regards and wishes for 2020.
