Customizing the Control Panel
After the introduction of the Properties Panel in InDesign CC 2019 we have another context sensitive panel that shows many functions and options depending on which objects the user selects. So this might be a good time to free up some space in the good old Control Panel. In the top right corner just below the Search Field you will find a “cog wheel” that lets you access the customization of the Control Panel. It shows 6 categories:
In every category you can choose from many options and tools that are shown or hidden in the Control Panel. Just tick or untick a box and you will can customized the Control Panel to your needs.
