The following screen shot shows an example of a neatly docked Project Workspace:

And below is an example of the Administrator interface where the Project Workspace is undocked:

Whilst having the Project Workspace undocked does not affect the functionality; in fact some users may prefer this way of working, it is useful to know how to revert to a docked workspace:

  1. Right mouse click within the Project Workspace pane.

  2. Make sure the Docking View option is Checked ON; if it is ON a check mark shows up on the left side of the Docking View option:

    Figure 3

    Note: The above image shows an undocked Project Workspace pane, and right clicking within the pane shows that the Docking View is not checked ON

    Figure 4

    Note: The above image shows an undocked Project Workspace pane and, right clicking within the pane shows that the Docking View is correctly checked ON.

  3. Double Click on the Title Bar of the Project Workspace pane.

  4. The Project Workspace pane should now be docked:

As a result of the above procedure, whilst the Project Workspace is now successfully docked, it is possible that, rather than seeing it docked as per the above screenshot, the docking may look like the following:

If the above situation does arise, whilst noting that it is usable, it may be inconvenient to be required to click an object within the workspace to see the contents displayed further up.

It is possible to move the workspace window as described in TEC340587 (SuppportConnect link, Portal Link).
