Workflow Ribbon

Panes can be closed by clicking on the “X”. They can also be opened or closed in the View Menu. You can even lock them, so you don't accidentally move stuff around.

Panes can be dragged around and placed almost anywhere you like within Production.  Just left-click and hold the top of the pane’s title bar and drag it to where you want it.  It works just like Windows does.  Try it out.  If you like it, it can be saved and used for any case in the future.

Opening & Closing Panes

Once you have your production screen the way you want it, go to Custom > Save Workspace... and then give your Workspace a name.

Selecting OK places your Workspace in the Custom Menu.

To delete a layout or make a copy to send to someone. Choose Open Workspace Folder. It will open the location of the workspace file in windows explorer.

Don’t want what you created? – Delete the file and the next time you Open OnCue it will be gone.

Someone saw an awesome layout you made? – You can copy it and send it to them. If they drop it into the workspace folder on their machine, it will appear when they open OnCue.

Custom Workspaces/Layouts

We understand that people work differently.  Not all of us need every window open at any given moment on their computers.  In OnCue we have created a Workflow Ribbon that functions as a shortcut to layouts that you might use to complete different production tasks.

The Media Bar is independent of these panes and does not move or alter with the working panes.  With each click of the buttons on the Ribbon, panes open and move around according to the task at hand.
