Additional small panel bar like in Illustrator

Recommended Posts

Customizing the studio space is very important, especially for small screens. 

Illustrator has quite an awesome feature that affinity designer is missing. You can create a second studio with minimized (icons only) panels that pop-open when clicked. This saves a lot of space but makes them much easier accessible compared to only the tabs in affinity (often you even have a scrollable tab bar).

The benefit is that you can have your big panels on the very right and expand one additional panel on the inner right studio. This males working soooo much easier. It would be great if you could add this feature.

This has been requested before, and like then, I want to add my vote for it to be implemented.

Best regards!

Ohh, I did not find it in the Forum. But happy to hear others need this too. In my opinion this is a vital workflow improvement.

The thing I do meanwhile is to use the Ctrl + H command on Windows. That hides the Panels.

Best regards!

Sadly this does not help me at all. I want multiple panels open and the tabs just make it impossible because of of my screen size.

I strongly agree with this.  Is a long time user, I have a set of primary panels open all the time.  And right next to it I have a set of secondary panels as thumbs.  I would not want to commit a lot of screen space to those panels, but I still want quick access to them and Adobe solved it very well with that system.  Especially since there are key commands that can open those panels, and optionally, they can auto-close when you click away. In some cases, a key command will not only open the panel, it will also simultaneously place the cursor in a dialog, high light it's content, and allow you to immediately type new data. For example, the text dialogs work that way so you can change a font, text, and most characteristics by tabbing through the boxes and changing their content, without ever touching the mouse.  It's makes for a supremely fast workflow.
