Description sholton 2005-12-01 15:23:49 UTC
There's no way (or it's unclear how to) re-dock the Slides pane once undocked.

I was expecting this to follow the UI of the Tasks pane which includes
a 'View" menu with a "Dock Task Pane" command.

To Reproduce:
1. Use an existing presentation or create a new one.
2. Select menu View:Slide Pane to make the slide pane visible.
3. un-dock the Slides pane if currently docked by drag and drop in the 
   slide pane title bar (click and drag on the word "Slides" until the
   pane undocks.)
4. Slide panel will remain undocked for this user across presentations and 
   application restarts. There is no apparent mechanism to re-dock the Slide

On Windows you have to use ctrl-doubleclick. Try the equivalent in Linux. Does
it work?

Yes on Linux.

ctrl-doubleclick in the menu bar is a valid workaround to re-dock
both the Slides pane and the Task pane.

Is this just a missing "View" menu for the Slides pane?
