can I pin the toolbox and layers to the GIMP window?
When I minimize GIMP, it would be nice if these two toolbars minimized along with it. Any way to do that? I noticed GIMPshop up for download on download.com, which seems to have this feature but it mentioned that the main GIMP program is more up-to-date so I got that instead.

Why would I want toolbars on my screen when I've already minimized the program? :\

Thanks. I'm still having trouble hiding the toolbox though. Ctrl+B or Tab doesn't do anything when the window is active, and it just gives the toolbox focus when it's inactive.

Edit: Nevermind. I figured out that if I don't maximize GIMP then the toolbar minimizes with it. Thanks for the help.

A little dust off here...

First, this doesn't seem to work for me.

I would really like it if the toolbar (and any other box, color balance/color to alpha/etc) could be attached to the main window. Can they? OP's question was never really answered.

These boxes are just getting in the way when I open then up, I feel like I am moving windows constantly. When I use multiple monitors the boxes seem to appear in random places, often not in a place where I can even see/select them.

I'm sure that there are many valid reasons for having separate boxes. I'm not trying to complain or insult anyone. This is, in fact, the only critique I would give to the program itself.

...Oh... Well, thumbs up for that idea.
