docking dialogs
I want to dock the 'tool options' dialog. It used to be docked beneath the toolbox but is now floating as a dialog and I can't dock it. I have read section 2.3 of the user guide but it doesn't seem to apply. For instance, in single-window mode the tool options dialog, when clicked from Windows, opens as a dialog, not docked, and when I click the tab arrow and try to add tool options it has no effect. I can't see any blue line appearing when I move the mouse over a dock border. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I'm using version 2.8.0

RE: docking dialogs
You have the right method. But this version might be easier. As your Tools may overlap the bottom of your screen.
1) Switch "Single Window Mode" off (for the moment)
2) Drag the "TAB" of the "Tool Options" over the bottom edge of the floating "Toolbox".
3) It should be easier to find a blue line appearing. Drop it onto the blue line.
4) Switch "Single Window Mode" back on
6) Adjust the size back to your liking.

RE: docking dialogs
Tried both pieces of advice and both worked. Two things had been confusing me: 1) I hadn't realised you have to drag the dialog by the right bit of the box as shown in your diagram, ofnuts (same problem experienced by atpinckn below) and 2) my gimp colouring is charcoal grey which highlights to light grey, so the blue lines don't appear for me.

You've helped me a lot, ofnuts and ianp5a. Thank you.
