Workspaces in Toolbag are customizable preset layouts of your application windows, allowing you to personalize different parts of your art production pipeline with your preferred window arrangements. Workspaces let you arrange panels, tools, and views to suit your needs, improving your efficiency and productivity.
Default Workspaces #
Toolbag provides several default workspace views to cover various stages of the production pipeline. Note: Moving and changing the positions of windows in default workspaces will auto-save the changes. If you’d like to reset a workspace to its default state, go to Window > Workspace > Reset Workspace.
The Classic workspace will be familiar to users of older Toolbag versions. It contains the Scene outline window on the left, the Materials window on the right, and a single Viewport window in the middle.
This workspace is designed to make organizing objects in the scene easier. It has a similar layout to the Classic workspace, except it has four different viewports for each camera view instead of one: Top, Front, Right, and Perspective.
The Texture workspace is designed for texturing with Toolbag’s Texture Projects to paint and author materials. It includes the Scene outliner on the left, Layers and Layer Settings windows on the right, a 3D viewport, a 2D viewport, and the Library window docked in the bottom center.
The Render workspace focuses on setting up perfect shots by offering a split-viewport presentation, with your Perspective viewport on the bottom as a “working” viewport and your customized camera view on top. This lets you see the final result through the camera lens while establishing your scene and camera angles.
This workspace displays all animation-related windows for when you want to import and work with animated files. It has a similar layout to the Classic workspace and includes a Timeline window under the viewport.
Custom Workspaces #
Toolbag offers flexibility in configuring your workspaces to adapt to your specific requirements. You can dock windows onto the layout, dock windows inside of windows to create tabs, and detach them to make floating windows. This flexibility is particularly useful when working with multiple monitors, as you can distribute panels across displays.
To add a new workspace, click on the plus button in the workspace panel and customize it to your liking. You can also duplicate or delete workspaces, change their order, reset the settings of an individual workspace, or reset all default workspaces. To rename the workspace, simply double-click on its tab and enter the desired name.
One of the most helpful features of Toolbag’s Workspace system is the ability to create as many viewports as you need. You can either create a new one or split an existing viewport. It’s especially useful when working with different cameras or views in the scene.
