Interface

Inspector

The Inspector is the sidebar on the right side of your interface in Linearity Move. It shows you the controls for the tool you’re currently working with, or the editing options for the element you have selected.

Most of these controls are divided into collapsible menus, which allow you to view and edit the properties of your selected elements, manage import options, and more.

The Inspector is context-aware, meaning you will see different sections and controls there depending on which tool or element is currently selected.

You can hide or show the Inspector by clicking the Inspector button at the top right of the top toolbar, or by pressing the shortcut ⌥⌘2.

The Inspector has two main tabs, the Style tab and the Animation tab.

Style tab

In the Project view, the Style tab allows you to change the background fill and color of your animation, as well as toggle the “Clip content” option on or off.

In the Scene view, the Style tab allows you to change the properties of your selected elements. Here, you’ll find things like Position, Arrange tools, Appearance tools like Blur and Opacity, and text editing tools.

Animation tab

In the Project view, the Animation tab allows you to work with your Scenes faster, giving you options like adjusting the selected scene’s duration, duplicating a scene, and more.

In the Scene view, the Animation tab allows you to change the animation properties associated with your selected element, as well as easily add new ones.
