Docking Panel Windows

Panel windows can be docked to any edge of the main application window. They can be stacked horizontally or vertically. This example shows several panels docked at the side and bottom.



To dock a panel window:

1.Drag it to the edge of the application window, or to the edge of an existing panel window.

2.You can also drag it over an existing panel window to split the panel area in half.

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.
