Camera Raw: Reverting from 12.3

The ability to update my computer is for admins only so I just now finally got to upgrade to Camera Raw 12.3 (It's been a couple years since I was last able to update) and some of the changes are incredibly frustrating. Is there any way to revert back to some of the older user interface options? I've seen in a few forums that downgrading to 12.2 is one way to go, but again, my computer is so locked down with admin access that I am unable to do this.  The crop function is horrible now, the zoom seems all messed up, and the shortcuts to the tools are in new locations so it takes twice as long to find anything. Who does this?

There is no option, except downgrading.

Totally feel your pain.  Whilst some people enjoy the changes, those that do not and have established fast usage of the old ways have been left high and dry by the changes with no proper Legacy control options.  Sadly there is very little we can do as the voices of discontent, when they do manage to find where to say, are too few to make an impact, and the glaring issues are lost on the multitude of casual users.

Why haven't they just added the option to choose which interface you want to use...

I mean, seriously, people who pay by the month have been begging for something since the new interface was forced down our throats. :(

Because "some" people like it as much as we hate it, it fits with the transition to touch interfaces better, it looks more like Lr for those that like that Fisher Price interface, and it forces people who resist progress for the sake of progress away from what may actually work faster to something that looks like it must be more efficient.  I have used the upgrade now for over 10,000 photos and it is still not as fast, but there are positives even if the overall user experience favours the casual instagram artist/retired dog snapper over a high volume working professional.

Right, because every mom & pop pays for a yearly subscription! lol (Yes, I'm also being sarcastic.)

New stuff is great, but it boggles my mind why they insist on forcing this on us when 1 single preference setting would solve all of this... *sigh*

It’s not JUST a single preference setting. Adobe would have to maintain the dual interface code forever.
