Floating panels in Sai settings by SageMint Floating panels in Sai settings by SageMint
Settings to have all of your panels floating.I had sooo much difficulty finding this ;__; Keeping this here in case something happens to my comp down the road.

Note; Make sure to keep the original settings saved somewhere in case you want to change it back. Make sure Sai is closed when you do this!

Sourced from the comments from this video, since I didn't come up with this. Only found it here from the comments after searching for a solution for a long time; www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f62_j…

I recommend watching the vid too. Very helpful information on brush settings, color and the sliders.

Directions

1. Go to where you installed Sai Paint tool in My Computer.

2. Open Up Misc.ini with Notepad.

3. Change the settings you have to what’s in the above image

4. Save the document, close it.

5. Go to “start-sai.exe” to open sai (will make the changes take effect).

Done~



I'm opened for art commissions currently!

yes i figured it out!

you have to first make a new canvas,
click on windows
and there are options that says 
"show layer panel to right"
"show color and tool to the right"

if they are clicked and checked off they will appear to the right, if you
uncheck them they go back to the left

i hope this is understanding lmao

for no floating pannels it should look like this 

[Panel]

;========================================================================================
; Popup panels
;========================================================================================
;
; Show Navigator, Layer, Color and Tool panel with popup window.
;
; Setting:
;   0 ... Embeded
;   1 ... Popup
;
PopupPanels = 0

;
; Show Navigator with popup window.
;
; Setting:
;   0 ... Embeded
;   1 ... Popup
;
PopupNavigator = 0

For me it won't let Sai change back to the old, even if I change the " 1 " to " 0 "

is the embedded also set to 1?
all the numbers are correct there, if it doesnt work
then maybe the problem is somewhere else in the coding!

WHAT CODE DO YOU PUT IN ?UGH

:icongollyollie:
gollyollie Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
im not sure if you've resolved that problem, but what you do is
follow instructions 1 and 2 in the desc. of this, scroll to where it says "pop up panels" and underneath it says "show nav., layer, color, and panel with popup window"
if you notice underneath that it says 0 = embeded and 1 = pop up
so what you do is go to where it says "popup panels = (insert 1 or 0 here)" and type in 1 after the = for pop up panels or 0 for no pop up panels and repeat for the navigator one
hope i helped!
