I'm getting into sculpting, and I don't like that brushes are on the left side (I'm left handed and find it weird), I would like them to be on the right side. I haven't seen any post on that in google so I really have no clue. Any tips on that?

NB : I know that you can bring up the menu with Shift + Spacebar but if I can change the toolbar's position I'd like it more.

Go to Edit > Preferences and under 'Display', check the 'Developer Extras' checkbox and close the dialog. If you now use F3 to search and type in 'flip' you'll see an option called 'screen.region_flip * Flip Region'. Click that and your toolbar will magically appear on the right of the window!

  • $\begingroup$ That's perfect, thank you! I wish I could save the brushes location now that it's on the right side, for some reason it resets everytime I reopen Blender but it's fine as it takes 2 seconds to setup! $\endgroup$ – Riyujin Feb 18 at 17:34

It's a bit of a workaround, but as overlays are per viewport, you can split the view and disable the header and overlays on the right like so:

Then drag the left viewport over till the T menu is positioned correctly.

Save this as your sculpting workspace, and you should be all set.

Flip Operator

You can use the Flip to Bottom (or just flip header) operator - first assigning a hotkey then using when hovering over the toolbar. The hotkey for this is usually F5 from the 2.79 days.
