IDE windows - Locked in dock

(1/2) > >>

Nicole:
I used sucessfully the docking manager for the IDE windows.
Unfurtunately I lined up all windows from top to bottom by mistake.
Looong lines, narrow windows. :(

How can I bring one of them back so side by side?
Are there anywhere designs for downloading?

I just want my Delphi-IDE-Layout back....

You can delete the docking information or load a backup of your configuration. Yes it is possible to export and import this, but it is a learning curve.

BTW, i never use autostore of enviromentoptions. So i can simply close lazarus and all is good. If i change something in the enviroment (eg. docking) i do a manual store.

Martin_fr:
If you have hidden the dock-handles, either in the config, or maybe in the context menu (of docking-tabs, if you have) you can enable them.

Then you can drag the dock-handles, and re-arrange everything.

Nicole:
Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately I have no idea, how to unhide this dock-handler. Cannot find it in the search.
I searched everywhere.
Somehow I must have done it to line up those windows, but I do not know how.

btw
I find nearly nothing there. I was used to hit F1 on anything and get smart in Delphi.

As Lazarus seems in many ways much smarter than Delphi, - how can I do it? (besides the docking problem)

I haven't gone through the page, but I guess it should have the answer.

The image has the "dock handles" highlighted with a red frame.

If you drag such a dock handle, the the docked window becomes loose, and can be docked somewhere else.
