Description osavill 2005-12-14 14:40:56 UTC
Done with 2.0.1 Release Candidate 4

When a panel, e.g. the Navigator, is docked to the left or right side it would 
be very usefull if the panel name continued to show in a coloured bar at the 
top. There is enough room.

If the panels retained their title bar the could also retain their close button 
as well.

One of the main reasons to dock the navigator/stylist is to not clobber the
display with useless information.

What do you need a close-button for when the window is docked?
What do you need a title-bar for when the window is docked? How would that be
useful at all?

"What do you need a close-button for when the window is docked?"  
As a shortcut to undocking maybe  
  
"What do you need a title-bar for when the window is docked?"  
Because you maybe faced with a load of icons that may mean very little to a  
user.  
  
"How would that be useful at all?"  
As an aide memoire to what toolbar you are currently looking at maybe.  
  
If it really is this abhorant to you then don't do it, but I considered it a  
useful usability point. Why do you give them a close button and a title bar  
when they are undocked  when all that is required is a 3 pixel high grab bar  
at the top ?
