  1. I entirely agree with you. This is just a feature request. I do suspect many people would like to see such a feature (I am thinking about people coming from Paint Shop Pro, like myself), but of course it will be up to the developer(s) to decide if they do it and when. By no means I am demanding anything, and of course I am grateful to get such a wonderful software for free. So thanks again ^_^
  2. True. I can hide all the windows so that none of them gets in the way ;-) Seriously, of course there are workarounds. Docking them outside the main window, hiding them, you name it. But all those are workarounds but not real solutions. If the toolbars were dockable ("dockable" in this case meaning the ability to stick them to the border of the window without them being floating overt the canvas), everyone would be able to choose the layout they prefer.
  3. I don't think there is such a function in the windows API - and AFAIK the Paint.NET project doesn't except 3rd party code. You are right. After some Googling, there seems to be no standard .NET API to achieve dockable windows. I did found two open source libraries to achieve this, though. I checked their samples and they seem to work quite well: 1) A Docking Panels Library in .NET 2.0: http://www.codeguru.com/csharp/csharp/cs_controls/custom/article.php/c12875/ 2) DockPanel Suite: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dockpanelsuite/ Of course, whether any of those are easily implementable for
  4. I'm not familiar with .NET any more. I worked for a software company many years ago and we did something like that in C#, but I can't remember whether this was using standard API calls or a component API we had purchased...
  5. Mainly, you can maximize or give any size to your Paint.NET window, and the toolbars would always stay in the same location (relative to the main window, that is) without getting on top of your drawing canvas.
  6. Thanks for your replies. I must apologize again m(_ _)m m(_ _)m m(_ _)m since I did not find that post before. However, I had already figured that workaround by myself. It's OK, but I would still really like to be able to really dock the toolbards, and not having them floating outside my main window (I must be one of those guys who like to work on "maximized" windows). Cheers
  7. The current floating toolbars always get in the way, so I'd really like to be able to dock them. Other than that, wonderful piece of software. Keep up the great work! (note: this is not the same as "Movable toolbars" item in "Popular Feature Requests" topic -- check the attached screenshot) PS: Sorry for breaking the rules in my previous post. I should have read them more carefully. I hope this time I got it right ^_^
