Optimize your editing workflow by customizing the layout of the editor interface. This article provides information on resizing and adjusting the layout of your editor window. Additionally, you'll learn how to make the most out of adjustable the composition panel, media library, recording panel, and templates gallery. From moving and pinning a window to docking and resetting your workspace, we cover all you need to make the interface work for you.
Note on layout preferences and adjustments
New compositions will maintain layout preferences of the Timeline and scene rail size while the app is open. However, you cannot save custom layout preferences (yet). The layout changes will reset after closing the app.
Adjusting Editor panels
Showing and hiding the side panel
Changing layout for video compositions
If you are working in a video composition, you choose to have the Script editor and canvas side by side each other, or you can have the canvas above the script editor: Select > View > Move Video to toggle between layouts.
Moving and pinning a window
Click on its top bar and drag it to any location within the editor. This will "pin" the panel in place, allowing you to keep it open while you work on your project.
Resize the composition window and Media library
Click and drag the edge or corner of either window to resize it.
Docking the composition window and Media library
The composition window and Media Library can be docked to the left side of the editor window without covering any other part of the application. There are two ways to dock either window:
- Open the composition window or Media library, and press dock to side in the top right corner of the window.
- Open the composition window or Media library, then click and drag the window to the left side of the editor
Unpinning and resetting windows
Click the X in the panel's top right corner. The next time you open the panel, it will be in its default position. Note that the compositions and Media library panels will retain their dimensions.
