when i double click a docked window to float it and then dock it again the layout has not returned to the original. The inner fill window is hiding windows docked at the side or has reduced there size (width) to near zero. Please can you help?

Hi Geoffrey,

I've been trying to dupe this in our sample but haven't been able to yet. Can you maybe make a simple sample project that shows it happening and email it over?

Hi,

I've sent a small sample project which illustrates this problem to support@actiprosoftware.com.

If you run the project and then float and then re-dock toolwindow1 five times, each time toolwindow 3 will shrink until on the 5th dock of toolwindow1, toolwindow3 shall disappear and toolwindow2 (in inner fill) shall fill all of the form except for the area where toolwindow1 is. I need toolwindow3 (also tabbed with toolwindow4) to retain its size even if I float toolwindow1.
