Description ian_dohoo 2005-08-31 19:58:09 UTC
I installed OOo 1.9.125. I then opened the Stylist Window (F11).  The Help file
indicates that dragging the window to the side should dock it, but this does not
work for me.  The Help file fails to mention that you need to "Cntrl double
click" to get the window to dock (it just says to "double click").

There are problems with docking, see issue 48959. But ssa told there, that
rework is in progress.

Framework issue.
Comment 4 nigelenki 2005-09-05 18:54:36 UTC
Confirmed.  Works on Linux, fails on Windows.  Docking needs to be fixed on
Windows.  OOo2Beta2 in Windows, OOo1.9.125 in Linux (Ubuntu Breezy experimental)

Confirmed using OOo Dev 680m152 (Writer), using WinXP SP2 on PC.

This relates to Issue 48959, which (for reasons not clear) was closed.
The bug: depending on how you instruct MS Windows to re-draw on dragging a
window, will alter the docking behaviour in OOo of the Stylist, Navigator and
Gallery. Other toolbars are not affected (since they aren't actually windows).
To reproduce:
- Right click on 'My Computer'>'Properties' to bring up System Properties window.
- Select 'Advanced' Tab, and under Performance>'Settings'.
- Within the 'Visual effects' tab (should be displayed), untick 'Show windows
contents while dragging'.
- Open new OOo Writer document.
- It is no longer possible to dock the Stylist, Navigator or Gallery simple by
dragging the window to far side of document(right, top, etc.)

Work around:
- In an empty area of the window (eg. Stylist), double click while holding down
'Ctrl' key to dock.

Firstly, the issue of Help Documentation for docking seems to be fixed:
"Double-click inside a vacant area of the window while holding down the Ctrl
key. In the Styles and Formatting window, double-click a gray part of the window
next to the icons while holding down the Ctrl key."

Secondly, the actual issue of dragging to dock not working is covered by Issue

Closing this as a duplicate.
