Issue Details

When I open the control palette by right-clicking at the front panel, I find that the Modern category palette always appears expanded. How do I change the expanded palette category to another one for example to Silver category?



By default, only the first category in the control palette list will expand and show all the palette items. You can change the order of the list by following these steps:
  1. Open up and proceed to pin the control palette on the screen. 
  2. Move the mouse cursor to the lines at the left side of the category name, for example the Silver category, until it changes to cross arrow shape.
  1. Drag the category to the top of the palette list. Now you should have the Silver category as the expanded palette when opening the control palette.
