    With this post we continue to treat DAZ Studio 4, in particular how to customize the interface, since according to our workflow we can need a different arrangement of the tools and of the various tabs.

    Change Layout

    To change the layout, click on menu Window>Workspace>Select Layout….

    You can find a preview of the various layouts in this other post in the section Updated User Interface.

    Change Style

    There are two styles, Highway and Main Street, beyond that Darkside which is provided with a separate installer.

    To change the style, from the menu click onĀ Window>Style>Select Style….
    It will open a new tab where you can set anything you like.

    Customize interface colors

    Did you choose the layout and style, but the interface has some colors that don’t suit you?
    No problem šŸ˜€
    Click onĀ Window>Style>Customize Colors….

    It will open a new tab from which you can set the colors.

    šŸ˜Ž Want to come back to the original colors?Ā Just click the second button from the left, Defaults, and then click onĀ Apply orĀ AcceptĀ from the Ā Customize Interface ColorsĀ tab.

    Add tabs to the panels

    Depending on our way to work or by the used tools , we can adapt the interface by adding/removing tabs from the side panels or from the bottom.
    To add tabs just right click the mouse on the desired panel, go to menuĀ Add TabĀ and select what add.

    To remove the tabs is possible to operate in two ways:

    1. go to menuĀ Window>Tabs andĀ and uncheck the the tabs you want delete.
    2. šŸ˜ŽĀ The checkmark appears only on the currently active tabs.

    3. open the menu of one of the active tabs and selectĀ Close Tab.

    Change/delete the default loaded scene

    DAZ Studio 4 always start loading a default scene containingĀ Genesis (the 3D human figure included in DS4).

    To change this default scene with a personal or start directly with an empty scene go toĀ Edit>Preferences (alternatively can be used the F2 key on the keyboard)Ā and on theĀ PreferencesĀ tab move toĀ Startup.

    Here uncheck the box next toĀ Default Scene, or alternatively go toĀ File: selectĀ None to start with an empty scene.

    If, instead, you want that DS4 loads your scene on startup fromĀ File: go toĀ Browse for scene…, reach the location of your saved scene, select it and click onĀ Open.

    To confirm, click onĀ Apply orĀ Accept.

    Open the Preferences menu

    Move to the Startup tab
