Tool docking and Saving Interface setup

Recommended Posts

  1. I know this has come up previously. I typically like my tools on the right-side of the interface, and I can't stand floating frames. I'd love to be able to just dock the tools on the right-side of the screen. Currently all I can do is undock the tools and let them float.
  2. I'm not looking for preset workspaces, but the ability to save my workspace (panel and tool locations, and which panels are open/closed). This allows flexibility for different usage, and allows one to revert back to their favorite default interface. I know Publisher saves the interface from the last use, but in case I had more panels open on the last project, it would be handy just to load my standard preset and close all those windows at once and put things back to where I like them.

What OS are you using?

Someone posted a way to do this on Windows previously.


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

One of the Serif staff said that the 1.9 beta will have some kind of function to save/restore user interface layouts.

Carl, Windows 10 1909.

I've Googled this a couple times, and the only topic on the forums I can find is one from Mark Ingram back in 2016; which just tells us the same thing the online manual does.

I can undock the tools; which then gives me the floating window. I can then move that anywhere I want but it doesn't try to snap/lock anywhere in the interface. Turning dock tools back on just puts them back on the left-side of the screen.
