Customizing Studio

Studio Settings

Many customization options are accessible via FileStudio Settings (AltS on Windows; S on macOS). You can quickly locate known settings by typing search queries into the search field at the top of the window.

Visual Theme

Studio features both a light theme and dark theme. If your operating system supports light and dark modes, the default option mirrors your system mode.

To explicitly change themes, search for the Theme option and select either Default, Light, or Dark.

Window Layout

Repositioning Windows

You can reposition any window by click-dragging its header bar into the bounds of another window. When you do so, a floating position selector appears in the target window.

Position selector widget shown in center of 3D viewport.

Moving your mouse pointer over one of the selector's icons shows a preview of where the dragged window will move in context to the target region. For example, the "upper half" icon makes the dragged window occupy the upper half of the target region, while the "right column" icon makes the dragged window dock to the right side of the target region.

Grouping Windows

If you choose the center icon of the position selector, the dragged window will group into the target region as a tab. This allows you to set up tab groups of commonly used windows.

Floating Windows

To float a window freely of other windows, click the small dropdown arrow in the upper-right corner of its header bar and select Float. Alternatively, to re-dock a floating window to its original position, click the dropdown arrow and select Dock.

Pinning Windows

To maximize screen space for the 3D viewport, you can pin windows (or an entire group of windows) as vertical tabs on the left or right side of the viewport. Once pinned, you can temporarily open any window by clicking its tab — this does not disturb other windows, and the expanded window will automatically collapse when you click in another window or click its tab again.

To pin a window or an entire group of windows, click the "pin" button. Alternatively, to un-pin a pinned window/group, open it and click the "expand" button.
