Working with Workspaces
|Top Previous Next|
Workspaces are stored designs for your user interface. A workspace contains the following settings:
Workspaces make it easy for you to switch to a defined interface. You would typically create a workspace to be able to quickly switch to a specific setting of the interface, designed to support a specific step in your workflow. For example, you could design a workspace that you use to rate your images, a different workspace to assign catalog labels, a workspace to add metadata, etc. Because each workspace gets its own keyboard shortcut, you can quickly switch workspaces.
Once you have an interface design that suits a specific need, you can store it by clicking the workspace button in the upper right corner of the application.
There select Store Current Workspace..
Name your workspace and you're done. Workspaces are stored as files on the file system. This should make it easy to exchange workspaces between different machines. Simply copy the workspace file to another machine and store it in the IDimager workspaces folder.
Now you have stored your active workspace, you can change the panels, etc and then quickly switch back to your stored workspace by using its shortcut. The shortcut is listed in the Workspaces drop down that opens when you click on the workspace button. The workspace shortcut is always [Alt]+n where n is the number of the stored workspace.
Changing your IDimager theme
IDimager comes in a gray color scheme by default. It is possible to change the application's layout to a different color scheme. To do so you select View | Customize Toolbars from the main menu (or right click on the main toolbar and select "Customize Toolbars". Then select the theme of your preference from the drop down box at the bottom of the customization dialog. As you select a new theme, you'll instantly see the result in the background.
