Flash Tip: Prevent Dragged Panels from Docking

Posted February 06, 2007 by senocular

I just figured this out today; hold CTRL while dragging panel dialogs in Flash and it will prevent them from docking to the interface. Lately I've been struggling with this (normally I don't move panels around but I have been for some of the things I've been working on) and was thinking, "wow, wouldn't it be nice if maybe some keyboard shortcut like holding CTRL could prevent a panel from docking?" Sure enough, I thought to try it and it worked. I'm a genius sometimes, even if someone else thought of it first :)
