Properties anchoring

93 Views, 2 Replies

I like to have my properties anchored on the left side of my screen, as well as the layer properties manager. Up until recently the properties has always stayed on the top and the layers on the bottom.    ...but recently they've started switching position randomly. It's really starting to bug me, is there a way to keep this from happening?

Not that I've found even with LOCKUI set to 15.


I used to always have mine docked to the left in this order.

It would stay that way for a few hours and then move Properties below SSM.

After months of fighting it my final solution was to just get used to the way that it kept getting reset to rather than trying to slam my head through the brickwall trying to get it to stay the way I wanted it to be.


Something else that frustrates me is that the PLOT command moves the QAT above the ribbon and doesn't always set it back below the ribbon after it finishes plotting
