How to change the layout

This article explains how users can change the layout of ArtEngine by moving panels, resizing them, deleting them, etc.

Typical use cases

  • User wants to change the layout of the software to focus more on the node graph, or the viewers, etc.
  • User wants to remove a panel because he has no use for it

Step-by-step guide

All panels within the interface can be moved and resized based on the user's preference. This allows them to tailor the layout to their individual workflow.

  1. Hover your mouse over a panel border - clicking and dragging to resize.
  2. Grabbing the top of a panel will allow you to drag it where you like (blue feedback will display to show where the panel will be positioned)
  3. You can also pop-out a panel to place it on a second monitor for example, or to close it
  4. If you want to re-open a previously closed panel, navigate to the Window tab in the menu bar, and click on the panel you want to display

This flexibility this offers can be seen in the differences of layout in the following examples.

You can reset your layout in the menu bar: Window/Reset Layout.
