Hidden Features of Capture One: Save your Workspace

Update 01 July, 2020: Users can get 10% off at the time of purchase of all Capture One products (perpetual licenses, upgrades and subscriptions, as well as styles) using the promotional code ‘DJP10‘ at checkout, when purchased via the official Capture One store [affiliate link]. Note the 10% discount can be used with offers advertised on the Capture One site.

Capture One Pro is a highly customisable app, and there’s nothing worse than getting it all set-up only to find the workspace has changed for whatever reason. I often find it different to how I left it (or thought I had), whether that’s due to a bug, an update, the yearly upgrade, or simply user error (such as removing tools or complete tool tabs).

Fortunately, Capture One has an option to save the current workspace. Once saved it’s easy to restore and if you want several customised workspaces; simply set it up how you want it, then save it. You might for instance never use the tethering option, so you can simply remove the dedicated Capture tool tab for that and save the new workspace.

  1. Make the alterations to the current workspace as you see fit.
  2. Go to the main menu and select Window > Workspace > Save Workspace…
  3. A window will open to allow you name it. Type in a meaningful name and save it. That’s it, you’ve saved the currently configured workspace!
  4. When you need to recover the workspace (or choose one of the pre-configured workspaces), simply return to the main menu and select Window > Workspace > ‘Your New Workspace’.


If you have yet to experience the benefits of Capture One Pro for yourself, you can visit the official site here to download a free trial [affiliate link]. Please note you will be asked to create an account but only a name and email is required. No credit card details will be asked for.
