How To Switch Between Open Files?

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • Hi,

    can't figure out how to switch easily between open .c4d files.....

    don't see them minimized.

    Can open files be arranged on the periphery of the gui as tabs?

    Eg, as in Dreamweaver, Flash, etc?

    I see how to make tabs of the managers, but not files.

    Thanks!

    Cal

    Go to the top and click on Window. Both of the files should be listed there at the bottom and you can click on which one you want to see.

  • Thanks......that was easy. =)

    Any chance of MAXON putting the tabs for files, or just a text link on the navbar to the right of View?

    There's plenty of room, and would be very convenient.

    They already have done. :thisrocks:

    Open the Command Manager, type 'Documents' in the name filter.

    Drag and drop the icon into your layout and save both the menu and layout as a custom strtu-up layout.

    Cheers, Alan.

    Also, in the Command Manager there are commands for Next Project and Previous Project. I use the hotkey for Previous Project to just cycle quickly through all open projects.

    The one on the left of the arrowed Document icon is for Recently Opened. Plenty scope for all. :thisrocks:

    Cheers, Alan.

  • Excellent! What an awesome program.

    I'm not familiar with the Command Manager, but

    I see a section on it in Help, and will spend more

    time using it.......i.e. Help!

    Thanks!

    I have been wondering about Why do previous and Next project have the same Icon?

    Some commands do not have any icon. Usually these are assigned a custom keystroke.

    You have this option for almost everything in the Command Manager. Hope you stuck with those pioano lessons. laugh.gif

    Cheers, Alan.
