Editor Swap

by carlosmu in Addons

Are you searching for a quick way to swap between editors?
You need more space? For example joining the outliner and properties editor?
Wait no more, try Swap Editor now! 

What is this addon for?

This addon will allow you to swap editors with a button or a shortcut. The linking between editors is fully configurable. You can swap between two or more editors sequentially.

Additionally you can also hide the button if you prefer only to use the shortcut. You can also assign the shortcut of your preference.


Click on button on headers of editors, or use the shortcut.

Which is the default shortcut?


Also you can change the shortcut on keymap prefs, on "Window" panel.

Enable or Disable buttons and set a custom icon

Fully customizable

Switch between 2 or more editors, as you prefer. Use the button or just the shortcut. Set the icon that you like the most. 
You can configure the functionality of the addon as you prefer. 

Supported versions of Blender

I have tested the addon with 2.83 and higher versions. If you have a problem with any of those versions, please let me know.

For 2.93 I update to (v 1.1).

For 3.0 I update to (v 1.2). The latest version should be compatible with 2.83 and above.
