Lightworks Flexible Layout

Applies to 2022.3 onwards


Experienced Lightworks users will find that the new layout is quite restrictive and not conducive for long form editing. The Flexible layout allows users to define exactly where they want tools, panels, viewers etc. This layout allows for items to be laid over the top of others and allows users to switch between rooms. The Shark is useful for quickly removing open panels/viewers and clearing the workspace.
