Lightroom/Aperture Interface

Using "G” hotkey, instead of double clicking on a preview image, to get the thumbnail/grid view, NOT GOOD!

Coming from the ecosystem in Apple in Aperture I regret Adobe having too many tabs and having to switch back and forth from the Library, to the Development Modules. And don't tell me their is a hotkey shortcut, because I don't want to use one.
For example I have to hit the G key in order to switch out of the Development Module to get in the Library Module so I can get into a grid thumbnail view. Sheeeesh!! Please look at Aperture to see their workflow user interface. All you have to do in Aperture is double click with your mouse on a preview window(While in the HUD/Development Adjustment Panel) and you INSTANLY get the thumbnail/grid view and you still are in the Hud/Development Adjustment Panel. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO FROM ONE MODULE TO ANOTHER ONE.

What I'm trying to say here is the workflow for navigating and adjusting images is massively more straight forward and intuitive in Aperture. The Adobe Team needs to get away from the overly tap module interface and do what Aperture does.

Please Adobe, have an open mind and just try using Aperture to compare your convoluted Lightroom interface. In other words all your applications need an interface facelift to get away from the overly tab, panel, module interface. "It's all about workflow”

I don't know if any one at the Adobe Support Team has tried to use the Aperture interface without using Lightroom for a couple of weeks, but it would definitely enlighten the Adobe Support Team to think outside of it's "Abobe box”_______
pun intended____to get a fresh viewpoint how much better a database can be.

Don't mean to rant, but I have been a very passionate Aperture user since its infancy, but now not so passionate about the "Lightroom Interface” (VERY BOXY) By the way I have been using the boxy interface of Photoshop since the mid 90s and don't like that either.
