Docking Windows

Postby uncompositor » Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:34 pm

Hello,

How can I have the Smart Shape and Special Tools Palettes always docked on the right-hand screen by default in order to avoid going to Window-Special Tools every time one needs them?

Thanks in advance.

There's an option in preferences to Close Subsidiary Palettes when Leaving Tool. Simple entry has its own option. This would apply to all other tools. So, you can't choose just those 2, but you might try unchecking that option and see if that helps.

If you display those tools on the tool pallet, the corresponding menus will open by clicking the tool.

You can also program your f keys to open the various tools. That's what I do.
