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~

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

I was wondering how to get it the opposite way, like still have the popups but not have them floating everywhere?

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!

Go to your search for the entire computer.
Type in "misc.ini" and open it
Press (simultaneously)  the "ctrl" key and the "F" key
Type in "popup panels" in the find box and search
Replace the "0" next to the PopupNavigator and PopupPanels with "1"

That should be it! If it doesn't work out let me know!

it doesn't work out xD you know i have 2 programs for SAI and in the other where i have textures and stuff this works but i don't really like to use that one because i can't roll the canvas with my tablet's trundle or what is it called, some tablets have it like mine and it works for zooming but not for horizontal rolling you get what im saying? xD so if you have some solution for that to be fixed then it's fine with me if this method doesn't work for the other one :/

I had the same problem!

If you have a shortcut for SAI on your desktop, then you can right click it, and click "Open file location" and find the misc.ini from the folder that SAI is in. c:
