It allows to keep the active window hooked to the GUI structure, or to unhook it to move it to a different area of the screen, or to view the document in full screen.


In the menu View → Document windo select the desired condition.

The Docked condition is the standard, typical one, in which the work area is integral with the structure of the application interface.

The Undocked condition allows the user to separate the active window from the interface structure (including menus and tools) and move it on the screen independently. It allows to overlay the two windows, or even to display one and reduce the other to an icon.

The menus can also be separated and moved freely on the screen

The Full Screen condition is self-explanatory.
