The new environment settings (2.8) design makes taking photographs very very painful.

      Description

      I appreciate that people have been asking for ways to store their windlight settings as default and that we want to set special windlight settings for regions, however the new design is hell on photographers.

      Every change to an environment setting has to be saved as a preset before it can be used. That means that when I get the windlight set up as I want and then move the east angle I'm creating a new preset. Because the settings window is so large I can't really tell if the change I've made is correct so I always have to start over again and do more tweaking - which usually isn't right either. Then should I decide to adjust something else (adjust gamma, change clouds, etc) the process is repeated. If necessary I can compare steps etc. in two versions and list them - but honestly I think the problem is obvious if you just consider the user who's trying to take photos.
