Cannot dock the windows
Good day to all,
I have a problem docking the windows. The tool options window somehow detached itself and I just can't figure out how to dock it again. It is driving me buggy so I am asking for help.
I have read the help file and it tells me there are a couple of very light colored lines which are used for docking. I don't see any lines on the "Tool Options" window or any other window for that matter.
Thanks people...

Ubuntu 13.10
GIMP 2.8

RE: Cannot dock the windows
Why not just go into the Gimp menu; Edit -> Preferences -> Window Management
then click on that bottom option 'Reset Saved Windows Positions to Default Values'
that gets you back to a 3 window display. Now use Gimp menu Windows -> Single window mode.

Not a bad idea to lock the tabs when you have finished.

A bit about customizing the interface here. (those hard to find lines)

** now answering questions**
