    I have a question regarding the new tabbed interface in tne latest beta versions. Will the new Create tab be always present? I find it odd because it implies that you could create a presentation when you can only create a brigtwall. If you want to create a presentation you have to go to Edit -> Layout. A little confusing for some end users.

    Could the displaying of the create brightwall tab be optional (eg. selectable in the settings)? I think most BS players are used in a single display solution so always displaying an additional tab that usually isn't used sems awkward. Or maybe move the Edit layout to the Create - Single screen presentation or something like this.
