The Quick Preferences Panel provides fast access to commonly used settings and is accessed via a button on the bottom bar.
The Quick Preferences button can be added & removed from the bottom bar by right clicking the bar & ticking/unticking Quick Preferences.
Activate it by clicking the button with the Firestorm logo shown on the image on the right. To disable it, press the button again, and it will appear released.
On first click of the Quick Preferences button, the panel will open in a docked state.
Clicking any other viewer option or anything that causes the panel to lose focus will cause the panel to close.
When in a docked state you will see only a ? and - icon in the top bar of preferences panel.
Now drag the panel away from the bottom of your screen & you will see a downward arrow icon appear at the top.
The panel is now in an undocked state & will remain open unless you close it with the - icon or you click the Quick Preferences button again.
Unless redocked by clicking the downward arrow icon, the panel will always now open on screen at its last position.
Note: This setting has been removed on Metaharper skins.
