In the print composer in master, I have detached the the "Item properties" and "composition" panes, so they are now floating. When I close the print composer they remain open, and if I make changes in them, when I reopen the print layout the changes have been applied. Funky ;)

Disable floating dock widgets in composer. Fix #5118


#1 Updated by Nathan Woodrow over 9 years ago

This seems to be a bug with Qt and having more then one QMainWindow with dock widgets. I did find a bug report one day but can't seem to find it now.

I was thinking that maybe to disable floating dock widgets in the composer for now until a better fix can be found. Random floating dock widgets would be confusing to users.

Ok I have disabled the floating dock widgets for now. Doesn't give a good user experience with having a floating dock widget that doesn't close when the parent window does.
