Floating Windows

Floating tool windows can float in front of the main application window, and they can be docked to the edge of the window. By dragging a floating window to an edge of the main window, you can dock it to the main window. The tool windows are:

Project Window - a multi-mode window that shows project files and symbols.

Context Window - a context sensitive information window.

Clips Window - shows clipboard-like clips for easy copying and pasting.

Relation Windows - shows call trees, class trees, and other relationships.


Figure 3.5 The Clip Window is an example of a floating window that stays in front of the main Source Insight window. You can also dock it to the edge of the program window.

Tip: To get a floating window to dock where you want it, drag it so that the mouse cursor itself is near the edge where you want to dock the window.
