Managing the Views

The Harmony user interface is composed of different views, each one designed for a specific purpose. You can modify the location and accessibility of the views by adding a new view as a tab or as a window. You can also swap the view locations around.

Throughout this chapter you might notice slight differences between your interface and the images used to demonstrate the procedure. This is because the images are taken from Harmony Stage. Sketch is a subset of Harmony Stage.

It is important to know about the active view. When a view is active, a red rectangle appears around the view. Keyboard shortcuts and top menu options are linked to the active view. If a menu option is greyed out, it either means it does not apply to your layer, drawing or other type of selection or the option does not apply to the active view.

Workspace modifications are automatically saved when you exit the application unless you deselected the Automatically Save Workspace option in the Preferences dialog box.
