[Addon] Editor Switcher

This blender addon offers you a qicker way of switching between the editor types via pie menus.

You can get the source code on my Github page: https://github.com/robert-trirop/editor_switcher
(press the “Download Zip” button to download it)


  • Extract the .py file
  • Open Blender
  • Go to the User Prefereces in the addon tab
  • Click install from file and choose the .py file
  • Activate the add-on and you are done!

(ps: the default shortcut, to call my pie menu, is Alt+E, but you can change it to whatever you want in the line 69 of the python file)

I don’t use pies, but this one seems very useful! I might just have to use it!

Thanks for script Trirop! Where can I find list of editors? So I can add my own. For example I want to add Outliner, but I need icon and type attribute. “OUTLINER” parameter is not working :slight_smile:

If you enter something wrong and run the script, you get all possible attributes:

(OUTLINER worked for me…)
And you can find the icon list here :

Now I have my own pie menu :slight_smile: Outliner was not working, because I used TAB instead SPACE, when I formated script. Now it is ok. Thank you, Trirop.
