Customizing the work area (I)


Change the look of the Object Panel.

 

It's possible to change the aspect of the object panel, and its possible for it to be shown as tabs, as it appears in the following image:

It can also have this aspect:

To go to the Tabs view to the other it's necessary to click on the button , and select the option Show as Menu.

To return to the Tabs view, we drop down the Common menu (or the one that is selected) and we select the Show as Tabs option.

 

Rename a group of panels

 

It's possible to change the name of a group of panels in a simple manner. We're going to see how to change the name of the panel of objects.

 

At the moment the panel is called "Insert", but we want to chage the name to "Inserting". The first thing to do is click with the right button on the area of the name or click on the button , both located to the superior ends of the panel.

Then in the following menu, we select the Rename Panel Group... option.

 

After this will come a window in which we can introduce the new name of the panel.

 

Changing the panel's layout

 

Most of the panel's and the inspectors appear grouped next to others in a same floating window. In order to change the layout of a panel or some of its tabs it's necessary, in the first place, to select the desired panel and tab.

For example, we're going to see how to change to the layout of the Layers tab in the Design panel.

As shown in the image, the Layers tab is already active.

Next it's necessary to clic on the button , or to clic with the right button on the zone of the name of the panel or on the tab.

To change the group of the panel to another different group it's necessary to go to Group Layers with, after which a list of all the panels will appear, and being then able to select one of them.

This way Layers would no longer group in the Design panel, and would appear in the other panel.

Changing the keyboard shortcuts

 

Keyboard shortcuts are combinations of keys that allow us to access some options without the necessity of moving through the menus. In order to modify the combinations of keys it is necessary to go to the Edit menu, then to the Keyboard Shortcuts option.

In this new window it's necessary to select a command and one of the combinations of the list of Shortcuts, locate the cursor in the Press key field, next press the wished keys combination, and finally click on the Change button .

It's possible that we are not allowed to modify the combinations of keys of the selected set, being default combinations, the reason why we will be requested a confirmation to create a modifiable copy of the set.

It's necessary to also consider that you are not allowed to assign a command to a combination of keys that is already assigned to another different one.
