Howdy All, I was one who also bitched when they changed them and agree with the “dead” space running down to the bottom of the screen. Killing valuable canvas area. In SU15 I would float them calapsed over the menu tabs and click on the one I wanted to use when I wanted to utilize them. Screen shot 2 is 2016 and it is a tab instead. It takes the same effort to move the pointer to the right instead of the top of page, to select the tab I need. Then pin it to stay open where it is or dragging anywhere and still stay opened. It took a bit to get used to and I started learning other programs Unity engine and such. Guest what … they all operate in a similair fashtion so I had to change regardless.
One other thing that I found out was when I have it floating in the middle of the screen, by double clicking the blue title bar of tray 1. It will shoot back of to the right side remaining open and out of the way. If there is someting being blocked… double click it agian and it will retun itself back to the center of the screen. SU 15 did not do that, PLUS I have never opened SU 16 and had them scattered all over the place, if you know what I mean. Having to replace them back where I left them.
ALSO DID YOU KNOW that once you set up your tray(s) containt in 2016, YOU CAN SETUP KEY BOARD SHORT CUTS!!! (last screen shot) have it anywhere you want, then toggle on or off as your needs warrent!!!
I just wonder if DaveR knew that…??? He has been a great help to a lot of folks here and if I was able to share something with him, to help him out it would be REALLY COOL!!! Hey DAVE!!!
LOOK at that!!! They will never block your view again…Peace…
