Ubuntu: Way to hide the side-pane in Shotwell Photo Manager?


The side-pane in Shotwell takes up a lot of space. And it will only let users drag it bigger, not smaller.

But ultimately, since I only interact with the side-pane once and a while, it would be preferable to be able to hide it completely. Once hidden, I would like to be able to tap F3 as a shortcut key to unhide it.

Anyway to do this?


It is currently under development. Check out here

There's no way to do this in Shotwell today. However, it's the kind of feature we'd certainly consider adding if you (or someone else!) would like to write a patch.


This was recently fixed and will be available in the upcoming release of Shotwell 0.14: http://redmine.yorba.org/issues/5346


This is possible since Shotwell 0.14.

Two ways:

  • F9 is the shortcut to hide/show the side bar.
  • You can also use View - Sidebar
