By default you will see the full GUI layout with all the buttons:
But, if you prefer you can use the compact mode where you will only see the titlebar and the help line (where the help information and errors are shown):
To switch between the two modes use the litle arrow button in the bottom right corner.
Show elapsed timeDefault: Disabled
How much time it takes to run an action?
Each action have it’s own complexity and the time that it will need to complete will depend on this particular complexity and some particular aspects from your setup (screen resolution, number of monitors, etc…)
You can enable the “Show elapsed time” option to get a promt in the helpline when an action have finished:
Full screen lookupDefault: Disabled
By default spGhost only detects the content that are fisically inside of the Substance Painter main window but, we know that you may want to have some panels located outside the main window or in a second or third monitor so, you can set the “Full screen lookup” to allow spGhost to detect content from all your screenspace (of all monitors).
Please note that this will need some extra processing time so be considered and check this option only if needed.
Open/Show properties after adding effectDefault: Disabled
Enabling this option will automaticly open the properties panel if it’s closed or it will show it up if it’s docked in a secondary position at the end of an action that adds a layer effect.
