# Use workspaces to manage different layouts of the user interface

Date: 2021-08-25

Did you know you can use workspaces to manage different user interfaces in QOwnNotes?

If you for example want a view where you can edit notes and one where you just can preview them you can create a new workspace with the name Preview.


Then you can turn off the panels you don't want in the Window / Panels menu.


You can also drag panels around by enabling Unlock panels in the Window menu.


Afterward you can switch between the workspaces in the workspaces dropdown.


All changes you make to the user interface (enabling and disabling panels, moving panels) are done to the current workspace. Switch to another workspace if you want to edit it.
