Collapsible Palettes
on: September 17, 2019, 11:03:42 AM
A Request.

So many things new, or different, in 2.3, I feel guilty suggesting something else…

Sideways collapsible Palettes. I hate to suggest pinching from them, but Infinite Painter does this so well…. (And maybe the sharing of ideas is how everyone develops).

Sideways-collapsible Layers Palette: (Optionally) always visible: Full width, Partial, Minimal - each easily accessible, switchable, and fully hidden if required.

And the same with the Brushes Palette, where editing can be done in either full width, or compact. And, again, having the Brush Editor optionally left visible and, importantly, still active while trying on the canvas different changes being made, is invaluable.


While on the subject of Brushes... I just can’t understand why edits should be discarded when changing brushes. Retain edits until a ‘Reset’ button is pressed: that seems logical (and something other Apps have, belatedly, realised!)
I know a brush can be duplicated, and changes made to that, but - if in a Default Group - a new Group is added, confusingly full of the same brushes as the original; plus, unless the name of any edited version is changed at the right time, they can appear as identical copies.


 I do have other comments I’d like to make, but will post separately. Don’t want to jumble things together.

Brush editor will be redesigned soon.
We are considering floating panels for some views, like color editor, brush editor, layers etc.

@GlennNorfolk: Regarding the brushes settings edits save, Lucky Clan has said "To save changes you have to tap "+" icon in top toolbar and choose "Overwrite". It will be improved in the next major update."

I agree 100%. I would love to have a color wheel open all the time, in a window like the reference window. The same holds true for the brushes and the layers menu. I know this would make the drawing space smaller, but drawing would be much more efficient to not have to open and close menus again. Being able to drag these palettes to a convenient place on the screen, which for me as a right hander would be the left hand side of the screen, would increase efficiency.
