Abas e painéis



Top: Horizontal Tab header in the Topbar. Bottom: Vertical Tab header shows tab icons in the Properties.

Tabs are used to control overlapping sections in the user interface. The content of only one Tab is visible at a time. Tabs are listed in a Tab header, which can be horizontal or vertical.

Alternando ou reciclando

Vertical tabs can be switched with Ctrl-Wheel from anywhere in the tab. You can also cycle through tabs with Ctrl-Tab and Shift-Ctrl-Tab, or press down LMB and move the mouse over the tab header icons. (This does not apply to Workspace tabs; see Workspace controls.)



Panels in Properties.

A panel is highlighted in yellow and a subpanel in red.

The smallest organizational unit in the user interface is a panel. The panel header shows the title of the panel. It is always visible. Some panels also include subpanels.

Encolhendo e expandindo

A panel can either be expanded to show its contents, or collapsed to hide its contents. An expanded panel is indicated by a down-arrow (▼) in the panel header, while a collapsed panel is shown with a right-arrow (►).

  • Clicking LMB on the panel header expands or collapses it.

  • Pressing A expands/collapses the panel under the mouse pointer.

  • Clicking Ctrl-LMB on the header of a collapsed panel will expand it and collapse all others.

  • Clicking Ctrl-LMB on the header of an expanded panel will expand/collapse all its subpanels.

  • Arrastar com o BEM sobre os cabeçalhos irá expandir ou encolher muitos painéis em uma única operação.


You can change the position of a panel within its region by clicking and dragging the grip widget (::::) on the right side of its header.


Sometimes it is desirable to view panels from different tabs at the same time. Like, for instance, having access to a camera’s properties, while other objects are selected. This has been solved by making panels pinnable.

A pinned panel remains visible regardless of which tab has been selected. You can pin a panel by clicking on the pin icon in its header. Panels that do not have a pin icon can be pinned by RMB on the panel header and selecting Pin, or by pressing Shift-LMB.


Pinning is not available for all panels. For example, it’s available in the Sidebar but not in the Properties editor.
