- This page is about HeroBlade panels. For the "HeroBlade" panels in art applications such as Maya or 3DS Studio Max, please see Export Panel.
HeroBlade offers a variety of information and tools which can be accessed through the various menus located in the Main Menu bar. Panels have the ability to be docked, floating, or tabbed. For example, to open the Assets panel, ensure that it is checked. You can have as few or as many panels open at one time as you would like, and dock them in whichever configuration works best for you.
To rapidly turn all panels off, open the Settings Menu and choose Close All Panels. If you want to ensure that your panels positions are saved before hand use either the quick save/load or regular save/load UI features also in the Settings Menu.
