Layout Control in Blender 2.8

Let’s take a look at some concepts that will help you gain a better understanding of layout control in Blender 2.8. In this video, we’ll cover:

  • Every single window type in detail
  • Creating and deleting custom tabs
  • Creating custom themes and loading from the theme preset library
  • Saving your custom workspace as the new default
  • Splitting and joining windows
  • Changing window types

The transition from Blender 2.79 to 2.8 has completely changed the way that users are able to take control of their layouts. To be honest, the default tabs for layouts have worked for my purposes about 95 percent of the time. Every so often I find I need to pull up a new window to create a timeline that didn’t exist before, but that’s about the extent of my layout modifications. Good luck, have fun, and keep creating!
