Customize the editor

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 panels.

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

Resizing panels

You can adjust the size of the Script editor, Canvas, Scene rail, and Timeline by clicking and dragging the border of one of the panels.

Showing and hiding the side panel

You can show comments or completely hide the side bar, by pressing the  Comment icon.png Comments icon from the top app bar.


Changing layout for video compositions

If you are working in a video composition, you can choose to have the script editor and canvas side by side each other, or you can have the canvas above the script editor: Open the menu in the top right and select View > Move video to toggle between layouts. You can also click the App layout icon in the top right of the canvas.

Adjustable panels

You can adjust any floating panel in the editor. A floating panel will be a pop-out panel when you click on a setting or project asset.

Moving a panel

Click on a blank portion of the panel's top bar and drag it to any location within the editor. 


Resize the file details panel

Click and drag the edge or corner of either panel to resize it.
