|Summary||0011017: Palettes: By default, show them docked instead of undocked|
|Description||This is an user experience topic: I noticed that when I enabled a palette for the first time, it is undocked, and the different palettes show up on different places of the screen. I think it is very good that you can dock and undock them now, but in my opinion the default should be docked: This gives the user a much neater impression, and doesn't immediately require him to move the floating window to a sane position. Of course undocking still must be possible, and the tool must still remember that an user undocked a palette.|
To add to the coolness you can also remember whether the user last docked on the left or right side (Edit: fixed in 0011544) and automatically dock on that side instead of the default (which I would make left).
|Steps To Reproduce||Clear scribus application configuration settings, open a doc, enable all palettes and see them clutter the screen.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||If people disagree with this bug report, at least I would advise to look at the code that positions the popups. Quick fix: Center them all, better fix: starting from the upper left corner of the canvas, one below the other.|
In 0011544 Franz fixed the "Docked palettes position / size is not saved between sessions" issue.
As for the default behavior, my opinion, it's OK that that the palettes open up undocked.
Resolving this since IMO,
User can add palettes to dock and it will remember where they were added. So essentially the user only needs to choose where they want to dock their palette once.
