Collapse side windows Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

OSX El Capitan Ver 10.11.6 Affinity Photo 1.6.7.

In Clip Studio there is the ability to collapse the side menu windows. Layers etc Brushes what ever. Is there a way to do this in Affinity. In Clip Studio Paint it closes after selecting what you need brush, layer etc and then click paint on the screen area.  then it  opens the menu again when you click on your choice giving you a lot of extra screen area. Nice!  Can Affinity do something like this? Thanks

By default, theTab key is set to the View menu "Toggle UI" function, which shows or hides all toolbars, Studio panels, & the Tools panel. On Macs, the View > Studio submenu also has these four items at the bottom:


"Hide Studio" is another toggle that has the default keyboard shortcut shown (CMD-Shift-H) & hides all studios, whether left, right or floating (undocked). Show Left & Show Right do not have keyboard shortcuts assigned by default. As shown, I added one for the Right Studio in Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts, the accent character that appears on my US keyboard above the tab key.
