But after thinking about this for a while, I'm not so sure anymore...I know a bunch of Settings in Edit > Preferences > Metadata 2 which allow users to shot themselves into their foot and which I would hide in "no expert" mode.
QuoteI have many ideas, but I think what you are looking for is to disable features not polish the software to make it simpler or more visual. This would imply extra effort and I don't know if you are looking for this...What I mean is that there are many types of users, if you are looking for less complexity, it is not just taking things away, the interface design, the fonts ... it's also important. More visual, less data, more templates.

Quote from: Mario on April 05, 2021, 08:01:10 PMMy general idea was to hide dangerous features behind an extra switch. To prevent things like users enabling "Don't change the file date/time on write-back" and then forgetting about it and wondering why Lr does not see changes done by IMatch. Or similar features which may be very important for some users (the IMatch user base is very diverse) but may cause problems when users play with them without actually knowing what they do.
