Extended Hint Panel

The extended Hint Panel appears in the lower-left corner of the FL Studio desktop. It relays the same information shown in the Main Hint Bar including knob/slider values as the targets are manipulated and help-hints for objects when the mouse cursor is placed over them. The extended Hint Panel is transparent to mouse clicks so that objects beneath it can be manipulated.


  • Information - If you place your cursor over any control, a short description will appear in hint area. When a control is moved its value will be displayed.
  • To open/close the Hint bar, select the View Menu > Toolbars > Hint bar option.
  • To move - First make sure to select View > Toolbars and uncheck 'Lock'. Then move the mouse cursor to the center of the progress circle (the hit bar will fade slightly when you move over it and a cross cursor should appear). Next, click hold and drag the Extended hint bar to a new location. On larger displays the empty tool-bar area along the top has proven popular.
