AnchorDocking - Docking of Forms on Linux in Lazarus IDE
« on: January 28, 2022, 04:16:05 pm »
Using Lazarus 2.2.0 - activated AnchorDocking / Design

In previous version of Lazarus, the Forms are docking inside the IDE window itself, on 2.2.0 they are separate independent windows from the IDE.

Is there a way to have it working just as before ?

With a large number of forms, is hard to cycle through them, but also as soon as I click on a component property, the form where the component lives goes into the background

It sounds like you do not have the Docked Form Designer installed. The package file is: components/dockedformeditor/dockedformeditor.lpk. It was a separate option in previous versions too.
Lazarus 2.0.12, 2.2.0, 2.2.2, 2.3.0 (Git) / FPC 3.2.0, 3.2.2, 3.3.1 / x86 64-bit / Windows 8.1
