Description osavill 2005-12-14 14:47:39 UTC
If you grab a docked panel you can freely move it about inside the main OOo 
frame. The various gray boxes appear when it could be docked. But there is no 
way of causing it to float outside the main OOo frame. The only way to do this 
is to release the mouse outside a docking zone which causes the panel to float 
within the OOo frame window. The panel's title bar can then be grabbed and the 
panel moved outside the OOo frame. This should be acheivable in a single drag 
and drop action.

Hi Osavill,
What you ask works for me with 2.0.3 on Debian and 2.2 on XP.
Can you pls have a look? Than I can close as fixed.

Seems I misread the original comment. Sorry.
Indeed does not work: two steps needed to get window out ot main window.
