Can't find via Search - how to dock a dialog?
Hi everyone! I'm a consistent yet still newbie user who uses GIMP in lieu of other photo editing programs. Anyone have advice on how to get my Toolbox and Tool Options to seam back together? I somehow pulled them apart, and when I click on 'Lock Tab to Dock' it does nothing, they're still separate.

Thank you!

J.

RE: Can't find via Search - how to dock a dialog?
If you are reasonably new to Gimp and have screwed up the interface.

I would go back to the default setting.

Edit -> Preferences -> Window Management -> click on "Reset Saved Windows Positions to Default values".

That gets you back to the 3 window display

Then use the the Gimp 'Windows' menu -> Single window mode.

Size everything up, Set the tools the way you want, Fix everything in Edit -> preferences -> tool options and Edit preferences -> Window management.

There have been several topics about this very recently.

For a few hints on moving docks about etc.
