Is it possible to dock studio panels in 2 columns on one side?

 

I found the options to have studio panels on the left and right at the same time but I would prefer to have panels in two (or even three) columns on one side. I am currently doing lettering of the comic saga Nanits Chronicles in Affinity Designer and my "standard" working layout is to have script and references on the left side (25% of the 21:9 34' screen) and Designer on the right (75%). The artwork should be in the centre, so I have one long Layer panel + other panels on the right (see attached screenshot). The Layer panel is not docked, is actually floating over the workspace. Is there any chance to dock the two panel columns next to each other?

I don't think it is possible to have 2 docked columns of panels on the same side, but from the layout you say you want, what about making the main document window with the docked panels on it right narrower enough that you can put the undocked Layers panel to its right?

I find it weird. On Windows you can do that. :o

Best regards!

Waw, I didn't even think to use separated mode because it reminded me Gimp (which I hate :)) There is one problem when I switch from AD to script to copy text to clipboard. When I am in script only the main AD window is visible, the other panels are hidden which looks little bit weird. But it delivers the layout I want so let's give it a chance.

 

Thanks.

On Windows you can have as many columns as you want. Maybe you could ask for that Feature. :)
