i was looking at how i might make shotcut work more comfortably with my multi-display environment and came across a forum question that implied that ui elements like the timeline could be floated or ‘pop-out’. the question was about how to reintegrate the floating timeline after it had been popped out but there was no mention of how the pop-out was achieved in the first place. i can’t seem to find any info on this anywhere but would very much like to try it as it would make my exploring much more comfortable. how do i float a ui element like the timeline or playlist or filters?
hmm, again. just tried switching to ‘software’ display mode and still get crashing on floating the timeline. tried via the button as well as double-clicking the title bar as suggested. crashed in both cases. running on kubuntu, btw. 18.04 lts
Sorry to hear that. I just tested Shotcut v19.10 (our build - portable, appimage, or snap - not flatpak or distro package) on Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME Shell, and it works for me on AMD OpenGL or Software Mesa.
Update: just tested flatpak, and it works for me as well on AMD or Mesa. (The flatpak build uses Qt 5.12 whereas our builds use Qt 5.9.)
