Comment 1 _ ttran 2003-10-14 08:23:34 UTC
this is javacvs therefore -> tpavek
Do we need to fix the before the merge?
Comment 2 Tomas Pavek 2003-10-14 09:31:19 UTC
From what I read recently (I don't remeber exactly where it was) I got
feeling that TopComponents that were "flying" so far should be
automatically docked into the editor area. So this should be fixed to
behave this way. I've noticed that also e.g. Search Results window is
placed in Explorer too.
Comment 3 Peter Zavadsky 2003-10-20 15:55:41 UTC
It was a but in new winsys, as it was said, all TopComponents with
'unkown' modes or undocked yet...are docked into editor.

Now the logs are appearing in editor (documents area).

However now the VCS groups and vesrioning explorer are opening in
edito are too.... This will be fixed after merge, since we don't
branch vcs modules.

If there is a user she needs to change the position, she can use the
flag -J-Dnetbeans.winsys.allow.dock.anywhere=true, and then drag the
component from editor into explorer.
Comment 4 Tomas Pavek 2003-10-23 17:39:13 UTC
OK, this works now.
