The MultiDock is a container that can host one or more views. The MultiDock allows you to have frequently-used windows open in a centralized location, without obscuring the Track view. Instead of placing each view in its own window, you can group views by docking them in the MultiDock. In the MultiDock, each docked window is in its own tab with its own close button.
Figure 332. The MultiDock.
A. Each docked window has its own tab B. Click to the right of the tabs and drag the MultiDock away from the bottom of the screen in order to undock the MultiDock C. Dock/undock and expand/collapse the MultiDock
The MultiDock is only visible when at least one view is docked there. By default, the MultiDock is displayed at the bottom of the screen, below the Track view, but you can also float the MultiDock and even position it on a second video monitor. You can also maximize the MultiDock to do detailed work in a docked window, or drag the splitter bar at the top of the MultiDock to enlarge the tabbed view area.
When you drag a window towards the bottom of the Track view, a colored rectangle indicates that the window will be docked in the MultiDock when you release the mouse button.
