Whenever I press a button my timeline goes away, but the windows bar says it's still there

I’m using a laptop and wacom ten inch drawing tablet. The only way that I know how to get the bar back is by closing the app and opening it again, but that’s so annoying. Please help!!!

@MilkShake Hi, welcome to the forum. Pencil2D developers have addressed this partially in a new devlopment build, if possible please download a Nightly Build that corresponds to your operating system.

Windows 7/8/10 (64 bits) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LgunDv2B88OUg9nSjBeC9_cXUjuCkfWt/view?usp=sharing

Windows 7/8/10 (32 bits) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J7UqOl0R2upZKUjCtNE4vQzS0DiWxNLm/view?usp=sharing

macOSX (10.13 and above) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GAYnM7fxtB7vAxaY-BTF3CujMlCkiqh3/view?usp=sharing

Linux Distributions (AppImage; though we recommend to use flatpak) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eNpmioOFoOXVyf9g-M1yZvFNqoILRxMa/view?usp=sharing

When you get this version go to the topbar menu and press Windows > Reset Windows so you will get the default layout for Pencil2D if you can’t find your timeline.

In the near future there will be more developments towards improving the root issue, but for now the timeline scurrying away should not happen often, if at all ever again.

Make sure however that you also reorganize your layout to minimize the amount of vertical space used by the software. We recommend as a workaround to stack the least used panels into the ones that you use more often as seen in the following video https://streamable.com/eqd1z0

Hey @MilkShake,

Can you tell us your screen resolution?

my resolution is 1366 by 768

thank you @MilkShake. We have been aware of this issue: Timeline often disappears with resolutions lower than Full HD. we are working on it.

I switched my resolution to 1280x768. The timeline is still there unless i used the eraser tool, but it does not go away.

@Bignoob Please download the nightly builds, it should be better.

I understand what you mean there

If you put your power options to ultimate performance you should able to get upto 1920x1080 resolution. But remember that higher resolution means more pixels, that will make your performance and then your battery go down faster. But tell me your laptop specs anyways.
