Layout Editing Mode - I can't add more UI Elements?


Here is my current gui:

I'm trying to add a Library Search or Quicksearch from

but when I try to add them using the Layout Editing Mode, I can't seem to be able to add more UI Elements ?!? it only allows me to replace the existing ones, as if it was limited to this number of elements. There's clearly space for more.

I can only use Replace element, and then I lose my Waveform bar or the whole Playlist.

What am I doing wrong?

you need to replace with a splitter (top/bottom or left/right). when you do this, you now have 2 spaces. you can then add more splitters into each blank space so you end up with exponentially more panels if you need them. there is also a tabs option should you want that instead.

remember to use cut/copy if you want to put existing panels on the clipboard before replacing. you can then paste them into the blank spaces generated by adding those splitters. it might be worth playing with the scratchbox (view>layout) for a few minutes. when it clicks for you, you'll realise how ridiculously easy it is.
