I've been using Adobe Animate for quite a few years now and I remember having this same issue when the 2020 version was first released.
Now this may be just a matter of changing some settings I'm not aware of in this version, but the properties panel interface does not resize when I shrink the panel, causing the full range of options to not be accessible. When open at full size so that the sliders and options are fully visible, it's a little too large for comfort. I don't know if this was intended or if it is a bug, but I think it'd be nice if the sliders could change size with the panel, like what already happens with the swatches panel. If there's a setting for that already, I'd also like to know! I already have the UI look set as "Compact" and the preferences set to "Expert user".
Apologies if I'm not making the issue too clear, English isn't the language I use for Animate and I'm not sure I'm using the correct technical terms here haha. Here are pictures to show you what I mean.
I'm using Adobe Animate 21.0 on Windows 10.
Thanks in advance for your help!
I have create a post to talk about this problem but nobody seems to understand...
but I am happy to see that I am not the only one to recognize this bug
I think they are redesigning their interface for large screens and too bad for full HD ...
Thank you for the bump. Frustrating that nobody is understanding your issue when it is shown so clearly. So far this has been disastrous for my workflow as I have to pause whenever I want to change brush size to make the panel wide enough to see. The panel also does not automatically close meaning i can only see a tiny portion of my canvas at a time unless i spend one more click to minimize it (even though the option to do that automatically is activated). This is awful
Hey there, do you have a version of Animate that you prefer that dosent have these issues?
Yes ! in Animate 2019
The problem is only on the PROPERTIES PANEL
I agree. This is very undesirable. One step forward and 3 steps back. The properties panel is overrun with extra space. It’s incredibly difficult to navigate. I can’t downgrade to 2019 and below because creative cloud has removed the option. If the developers actually use the programs this thread wouldn’t be necessary. An option to switch to classic layout should be available to long time flash users. My theory is they let go of the veterans and hired a young generation.
