While we have worked with widgets in the layout mode, all the widgets that we had access to were already present in the layouts. Since we are aiming to create a new custom layout that would better fit our needs, we need to look at all the available widgets and them pick/customize them.
There are two ways of accessing the widget list:
- Alt + Right Click inside any widget (with Layout Edit mode off)
- Settings → Widget Settings
- Left Click on the Layout Name in the top menu bar.
- This will open the widget selection and setting for the current Layout. By default it will open on the AI Tools widget tab.
- The left side contains a scrollable list of all the widgets that are available in Stellar.
- The right side contains the settings for each of the widgets in the left column.
- Widgets that have a yellow name - are already active in your project.
Each instance of a widgets comes with its list of setting which are show in each Widget tab.
Some widgets do not have an extensive set of settings that can be altered. AI Tools is one good example of that type of widget.
Other widgets, such as the Audio Recorder widget, come with an extensive list of settings that can be adjusted by the user. As it can be seen in the image, there are two categories of settings that can be changed by the user:
- Position Settings - alter the position/size of the widget in the layout
- Widget Settings - alter the functionally based on the available setting for each widget.
Once the you have entered your desired values, you can press save to update the widget settings. If you do not want to save the changes that you made, just press cancel and your edits will be reverted to the original values.
