This article highlights some of the functions within the application menu that help to maximize the use of our software.
Tip: the keyboard shortcut for opening the preferences menu is Control+Comma (Windows) or Command+Comma (MacOS).
MacOS> Creator> Preferences
The Creator preferences menu is divided into 4 main categories: Appearance, Window, Integrations, & Advance.
- Module Animations:
- Notifications Panel: Notifications will be shown/not shown. Select reset to quickly re-center the notifications panel on your primary monitor.
- Show live value updates: Where supported, the notification panel will show live values for the current tool or adjustment. For example, the notification panel will show your brush diameter, measured in pixels, as you use the brush size function in Photoshop CC.
- Launch at system start: Open Creator when you start your computer.
- Close to menu bar: Closing the Creator window will hide it from view, but keep the app running in the system tray (Windows) or menu bar (macOS). Keyboard shortcuts will still quit the app.
