Top/bottom/left/right edge. The Control Bar, Inspector and Browser can be docked along SONAR’s edges.
MultiDock. Most editing views and the Browser can be docked in the MultiDock. By default, the MultiDock appears below the Track view.

The following list shows the types of windows that can be docked in each location, and the default for each location.
