Chapter 4. Setting up Your Space

Having your workspace set up to facilitate the way that you draw can help you save time and a whole lot of effort. After all, if you're a lefty like me, you don't want to have to reach across your drawing every time you need one of your most used tools. Though this isn't much of an issue if you're using a traditional digital tablet, onscreen drawing tablets are becoming more and more popular and affordable. In this chapter we will explore different ways of setting up the Manga Studio workspace, so that you can optimize your flow and always have your tools right where you can reach them. Topics covered will include:

  • Moving palette windows

  • Left- and right-handed workspaces

  • Registering your custom workspace

  • Switching between saved workspaces
