ETS supports two different window modes.
Floating windows are not fixed to a certain position (e.g. at the edge of the screen or to the main ETS window).
In some cases, it may be useful to have one or more windows floating over or outside the main ETS window. For example, this allows you to work with multiple monitors; the main ETS window on one screen, floating windows on the second. There are the following options for putting a window into floating mode:
- Pick up the window by its title bar with the left mouse button pressed down and move it to the desired position on the screen.
- It is necessary to move the window a significant distance away from the former position. When only moving it slightly, ETS will pull the window back into a fixed "docked" position (This behavior depends on ETS settings that have been selected).
On the left hand side of the Title Bar, a floating window contains the name of the project to which it belongs.
- Docked windows are windows that are fixed.
- ETS positions docked windows directly next to one other, so that the user has quick access to all relevant project information without the need to flip through cascaded overlaying windows.
The behavior in this mode can also be influenced using an Option via the CTRL key. The following possibilities are available in conjunction with the option.
|pressed||Currently floating windows that are moved with the mouse are docked when released.||Currently floating windows that are moved with the mouse remain floating when released.|
|not pressed||Currently floating windows that are moved with the mouse remain floating when released.||Currently floating windows that are moved with the mouse are docked when released.|
