Auto-save and restore Splitter location
Hurray! Blisk 21.0 finally addressed one of the most requested features - the automatic saving of Splitter location! This feature eliminates the need to move Splitter for every device set and will help you become even more productive. This significant improvement in user experience works in the following way:
As a result, Blisk will restore the splitters and device sizes for every session, users will work with the same configuration of device set even after application relaunch. Users will not need to configure the device set in every session.
For a better understanding of this feature, check out the examples of device sets and how Blisk interprets them in terms of Splitter location. Notice: these are just a few examples, this feature is not limited by device number.
If you specify device set with Galaxy S22 + Chrome-like view, then this Splitter schema will apply automatically because these devices are: Mobile + Chrome-like view.
If you specify device set with iPad 10 + Chrome-like view, then this Splitter schema will not work because these devices are: Tablet + Chrome-like view.
If you specify device set with LG G6 + iPhone SE + iPad Mini, then this Splitter schema will apply automatically because these devices are: Mobile + Mobile + Tablet.
If you specify device set with iPad Mini + iPhone SE + LG G6, then this Splitter schema will not work because these devices are: Tablet + Mobile + Mobile.
Requirements: this feature is available in Blisk v.18.104.22.168 and later. You may need to update Blisk application to apply this fix. View Documentation.
New Universal DevTools mode
Since version 21.0, Blisk offers another approach to working with DevTools by default. Universal DevTools is a single DevTools container docked to the right or to the bottom of Blisk window. Universal DevTools provide the ability to manipulate DevTools for a single device. The user is able to quickly switch the DevTools for another device by launching DevTools for that device. In this case, the new DevTools replace the old DevTools.
Dock DevTools to bottom
Another important improvement with Universal DevTools is that the users are now able to dock DevTools to the bottom of Blisk window.
If needed, you can enable the old Multi-DevTools mode from Menu (Developer mode) ➜ Settings ➜ DevTools ➜ Select the DevTools type. Docking DevTools to the bottom is available only in Universal DevTools mode, this mode is not supported in Multi-DevTools mode.
