Grouped Palette elements in RPE 2.1

The palette view has been improved in RPE 2.1 Studio, to group them under multiple, collapsible sections. The grouping is based on the nature of element. The commonly used elements are always available at the top of the view.



  • To switch back to old palette view, Disable “Palette drawers” under Window -> Preferences -> RPE > Document Design.
  • If you notice space constraint for the palette view, increase it’s length.

My colleague, Akash, created video on how to use improved Palette view.
