When playing Pillars of Eternity 2, one hidden setting allows you to change the design & layout of your interface between 6 different presets. By default, you are put to Layout 1 upon running the game.

When choosing a different layout, it changes the location of your buttons, hot bar, people and chat box. As of right now, you can’t create your own custom layout. Whether this will be added either officially or as a mod in the future is unknown.
