Prevent windows docking
on Jul 18, 2019 at 12:40:29 pm

IIRC there was the ability in Options/Preferences/Display to prevent windows from docking. In MS 12, I see no such choice. The trouble is, the windows dock on the main screen and with each other that for me it's a right pain.

So is there a way to stop all windows from docking, or each window from docking?

Thanks for any help.

To prevent a window from docking when you drag it, hold the Ctrl key.

Thanks for that. It certainly works. But if I am manipulating windows a lot, to Video Preview changes I made in another window, like Text Generation, and also need to see the Event Pan Zoom, then having to remember to use Ctrl every time seems a bit clumsy.

I wish there was a switch or at least that non-docking was the default and I had to press Ctrl a_to_ dock.

Anyway. Again thanks for the info.

Note that in later versions (MSP 13 >) there is in Preferences/Display the option: "Allow floating windows to dock (hold Ctrl to override)". You can leave the option unchecked.

AH... OK! I had 14 and that's probably where I remember it from. IIRC 14 or 13 were where I started seeing aggressive ads and such, so I dropped it. Maybe I need to reinstall.

Hah! Thanks for the heads-up. Not only does it stop windows docking all the time, but it also will dock them using Ctrl, which is exactly what I wanted.
