Tabbed Menus

Reminder: If you encounter any issues with Enscape or your subscription please reach out to our dedicated support team through the Help Center or by using the Feedback button as detailed here.
  • I find it really frustrating to constantly be dealing with multiple enscape menus. General, Materials, Visual settings and Asset Library I often want them all open all the time. I need an extra monitor just to deal with them. I think the way you can set it up (not the default) in sketchup is much better where you can tab much like a browser. See attached images for what I mean. It would be great if Enscape implemented something like how it can be set up in sketchup.

    Thanks a ton for your feedback, be assured that I've gladly forwarded it. Would you generally like to have the settings and all other windows in the Enscape viewport itself perchance? Or is there something else you imagine in this regard? :)

  • No. I like that I have a clean view of the model / rendering in Enscape. I like that I can put the windows wherever I want but would love for them to then dock together. In other words you never need more than one at anyone moment but if you could tab through them in one docked window. (free from the enscape view or not I suppose... in skp you have the option) .


    Currently they are all fixed sizes and all different. So I want them all open at once so I am not constantly opening and closing them, but sometimes I just have to do that because they litter up the whole screen and I cant easily keep track of them particularly while working in a lot of other programs at the same time. If I could dock them together and put them in one place it would significantly easier.


    It feels like the old days before browsers figured out tabs made life so much easier.

    I see, that makes sense of course. I've gladly filed this as a feature request accordingly dvsone1440 , and I also hope that you'll have a great weekend!

    Thanks Demian,

    You as well, and I hope the whole enscape team is healthy in our strange new reality.

    Thank you so much - we're all healthy and well, and very thankful for that. :) I hope that you and your loved ones are also safe and healthy in these trying (admittedly rather strange) times.

  • ...in principle, all available preferences should be possible. Since I myself am on the road a lot, I often only have my notebook at my disposal - At least in this situation I also would prefer the tab-variant suggested by dvsone1440 and by the way, always with an always on top option of the render window.
    (dvsone1440, I like your UGH sketch above ;))

    No !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Thank you very much, all your feedback will be noted of course.

  • I just want to bring this up again as I feel like I spend half my life chasing Enscape Menus. Particularly the Visual settings which I use the most but get hidden by other windows. But if it could have visual settings/Materials/General settings etc.. all in one tabbed menu I feel like I would get back hours in my work-life. Oh and I don't know how others feel about the new video editor/views etc that pop into your view or out and you can not undock them but I am not a fan.. again if those could all be in one menu that you could dock or undock with tabs... That would be really great.
