Setting properties

As shown in the video on the right, you can set widget properties from the properties panel. If want to quickly set a property, there's no need to toggle the properties panel, simply hover over it, select the command, and let the panel slide away again automatically.

Clicking on the properties panel will toggle whether it stays around or not.


Use the colour swatches to set background colour. Click the arrow button under the swatches to change palettes.


Set the title by clicking on "(no title)" which appears in the properties panel, and typing a title.

To edit an existing title, you can also click on the title on the widget itself, in the same way you edit widget text.

Setting the title in the properties panel allows you to set the title for multiple selected widgets

Titling tricks

A few macros exist to bulk title widgets. To use a macro, select the widgets you want to title, and then in the properties panel, set one of the following macros as the title. Eg, if you want to number widgets, select a bunch, and then set the title to (1..n), and fltspc will number them for you.

(x..n)Replace 'x' with the starting number, eg (10..n). Widgets will be labeled counting up to x.
(n..x)Replace 'x' with the ending number, eg (n..10). Widgets will labeled counting down to x.
(A..Z) or (a..z)Labels in alphabetical order, either uppercase or lowercase.
(now)Current timestamp
(date)Current date
(time)Current time
(created)Timestamp when widget was created

Macro results are only computed when you first set the title.
