Horizon Panels

by Pixel Egg Studio in Scripts and Addons


What's Horizon Panels?

Horizon Panels is a Blender add-on to manage N-panels intuitively.


Why Horizon Panels?

We use add-on very day with Blender, and we use N-panels, but the initial design of N-panels has some design issues. Here are the main two of them:

  • There is no enough space to show all tabs while the N-panels increase
  • N-panels tabs are shown vertically, this make user hard to read them

So I made Horizon Panels, which solves this two main issues.


With Horizon Panels, you don't need to remember any hotkeys, just use the
intuitive UI we provide.


Demo




Organize Tabs in Category

No need to manage category in add-on preferences window, just in place.





Manage Panels Tab In Category Is Easy

Toggle checkbox to add or remove panels in a category.




Multiple N-panels In Horizontal Tab

Some tabs have multiple N-panels, there is no problem to show multiple panels in horizontal tabs, you can choose which panel to show while clicking tabs.



All Categories Synced Between Multiple Versions of Blender

You don't need to setup category per Blender version, the categories are automatically synced between multi Blender versions. It saves you a lot time.


Limitations

In 3D View port, the horizon tabs only response to mouse click in object mode, and edit mode, because other modes like paint mode, sculpt mode block mouse event form other add-ons.

But you still can use the original N-panels tabs in paint mode, sculpt mode etc.
