Work with drawers

The use of the Drawers is simple ... just drag and drop a panel inside a Drawer. Yes, that's all! A panel is added to a Drawer when it is dropped on it.

To drag a panel, click and drag the title bar of the panel.

If there are too many panels to be seen inside a Drawer, a slider appears on the right or left side of the Drawer.


If you want to remove a panel from a Drawer, just drag and drop it outside. Floating panels can be placed anywhere in the program window.

You can also see that when you add a panel to a Drawer, all the other panels inside it move automatically to make room for the dropped panel. Similarly, if a panel is removed from a Drawer, the remaining panels will fill the space

To gain even more space in the Drawers, all the panels can be collapsed (the triangle on the top right corner of the panel). Of course, when a panel is collapsed or extended, all the other panels in the Drawers move automatically.

The Drawers themselves can be hidden by toggling the pin in the top corner of the drawer, allowing you to work on an even cleaner workspace.

The Drawers are always visible.

When this option is activated [*]img-drawers-activated-tooltip[*] (like in the image above), the Drawers are always visible.

Whereas when this option is not activated Option deactivated (like in the image below), the Drawers hide in the program's window border, when the cursor is not over them.

And when the Drawers are hidden, only a thin bar is still visible near the TVPaint Animation window borders. To show the Drawers again, move the cursor over this bar, and it will reappear.
