detached validation window

Hi,

I accidentally detached the validation results window, so it is now free-floating. I can't figure out how to reattach it. I know there must be a simple fix. Thanks.

One way to reattach it is as follows:

grab the now free floating validation window by its window title bar. Move it over the main Sigil application window above where it would normally sit.

Now slowly move the validation window lower toward the bottom of the Sigil Window and watch for a screen flash that will open up a bare place for it and let go of the mouse.

I had to try this 3 or 4 times to get it to work.

I don't know whether Sigil is one of them, but some applications will return a floating window to its default position by double-clicking the Title Bar (of the floating window).

Thanks! I couldn't get the first method to work, but double clicking on the title bar did the trick.

Funnily enough, for me Kevin's kludge worked and the double-click did not!

It is not a Kludge, just the other way

BTW (with fuss) you can double-dock (tabbed), I have the TOC and Book browser in the same location, with selection tabs .

Then you just didn't double-click in the right place. I've never had the titlebar double-click not redock a widget.
