Also, if you look at the Main Menu under Element | Inline Features, you can tear that menu off to use as a toolbar.
in the previous post.

What would be trooly cool  8)  would be the ability to tear off specific toolbars (e.g. profiles).

bruce,

Do you mean the Profile Folder in the Toolbox (Perspectives)

or

the UML Profiles and Matrix Profiles Packages (Resource View)?

howdy bruce,

on a related note, we've added a related feature in 6.5 - all*  the toolbox items are now available from the ctrl + right click menu.

*(even profile ones)

One thing that needs to be added tho, is to detect at startup if these floating windows are within a visible display area and adjust their positions if not.

I carry my laptop about, and when there is an extra monitor available I plug it in and expand the tear-offs etc. to the extra desktop space.  When I end up somewhere without an extra monitor, these windows are out of site and it is a hassle to get them back into the active desktop space.

If there is an easy check or auto-adjustment feature that can be implemented, that would be sweet.

Quite some people have that problem. You might raise this as bug(/defect) report to Sparx support.

Actually the exact thing happened to me.
How did you get the tear offs back into the active window?
I still cant seem to do that.
I am on 6.1
Thanks!

yup. it did.
I didnt realize that a checked choice meant that it was actually not the selected state :-)  Even after a year I still feel pretty new to the app regardless of how much of the docs I read.
I do appreciate the support offered here. It really helps.
