Save and Restore Window Layouts

Window Layouts allow you to quickly configure Rhino’s interface to focus on the task at hand. Design your own to show only the tools you need.

Focus On the Task At Hand

  • Customize Rhino to show only the tools you need.
  • Save and restore Window Layouts to easily switch between your library of presets.
  • Move Rhino from screen to screen. Rhino’s proportional window positioning ensures toolbars and panels stay where you put them.

Familiar on Windows and Mac

Have you ever tried to teach Rhino from your Windows PC while your students are on Mac? Ouch. The differences pile up, making teaching painful. Rhino 8’s user interface is substantially similar between platforms (except for the Command Prompt). Tools are in the same place; icons look the same. You can share Window Layouts with others - even between Windows and Mac.
