Window layout?

Recommended Posts

Just installed DarkRadiant 3.8.0.x64 (on W10/64) and tried to follow Springheel's excellent New Mappers Workshop.

Sadly, I couldn't change the window layout since the command isn't there. It should be in View > Window Layout > Floating or View > Window Layout > Dockable (as the userguide says). But the View menu is much smaller and doesn't contain a layout command. 

Any help? Thanks in advance.

You are looking for docking/undocking windows?  I think just click the title bar of the window you wish to undock and drag out.  To re-dock, click the window title and drag to the spot where you wish to dock it.

Try that?

Thanks for all your help, but I still don't get it.


I'd like to have my workspace set up like Springheel in his mapper's workshop, but it doesn't work. I can't move the windows the way I like. The XY window isn't even scalable and it doesn't have a title bar.


Fortunately I have a setup with 3 monitors, so now I have the ortho windows on the middle one, the camera window on the left and the properties window on the right one. But this is cumbersome, it involves turning my head constantly and moving the mouse around for long distances. 


How can I make the Springheel layout work?


Thanks in advance.

What is the @Springheel layout? If you would have posted a screenshot in the first place, more people would be able to help you.


In the Window menu, you can select what is visible. In the View menu, you can make extra xy and camera views.

You can place tabs in the Properties Window and you can move them elsewhere by doing right-click on a tab and click on Undock. Then move it in an other place.

That layout is possible. You need to:

  1. Drag the camera view and dock it at the bottom right.
  2. Drag the properties panel and dock it at the bottom left. This will leave a vertically split window, with the properties panel and camera view at the bottom, and a single wide XY window at the top.
  3. Choose View -> New XY View to create a new XY window, and drag this window to dock at the top right, leaving the default XY window at the left.

      I don't think The Last of Us part I is a good game; it is something else in terms of pure audio-visual experience though. The attention to detail is insane, especially in sound and animation.

      If you find the new Beatles song "Now and Then", which was created with the help of AI, totally boring, then you should better play the mission of the same name by our esteemed mission maker friend joebarnin, because the latter is actually a creative milestone!

      Idea: Thief 3 style missions.
      One of the great features of Thief 3 are missions defided in small segments with loading screens when you move from segment to segment. We all miss those right? I was thinking of mapping only horizontal, so not stacked. When you go up or down (stairs or elevator), you get a 20 seconds fake loading screen where you can play a minigame (The Builder's Blocks?). After that you get teleported to a different area that seems to be on top of the first, but actually isn't in the map file. It's much easier mapping, because you can see everything in one glance from above. This could also give more freedom building, because it doesn't have to fit. Everything is predictable because guards don't move to different sections.
      This could be used for the Thief 3 contest possibly..
