I really like it! It is a space saver. I am running two monitors and both of them are usually full. This would make it easier to access more information. I also like Jon's idea of making this an advanced option.

It will surely be an advanced option, yes

I've been so busy with my own module development that I have not been keeping tabs with TW program development. But add my voice to those who would find this a useful feature, even if only "advanced." It shouldn't take the place, however, of being able to float an undocked window. I see a separate value to these two abilities.

Basil,
I have floating windows in 1390 and they are working fine. You are right we still need floating windows.

Costas, I just wondered if it was possible to have floating Panels, so you could dock things like the search views and Bible tree on a second screen and they take less space.

In general, playing with the layouts is not easy. I understand that you are saying having something like a secondary window that also has pre-defined docking areas, correct?

@Costas
I noticed that when working with the silverpoint library and doing only one column it isn't as complicated to save the settings. Perhaps this could work for an intitial floating panel though I'm sure some would want more than one column.

Is this feature going to get reintegrated into a newer beta?
