Palette Madness

Collapse those Palettes

I've opened up so many floating palettes, I can barely see the document! I try to turn them into side tab palettes (the kind that collapse into tab-only mode on the side of the screen) by dragging them to the right edge of my monitor, but they refuse to collapse. They just sit there, hanging off the edge of the screen, laughing at me.


You're probably dragging the palette from its title bar. That's fine for moving it around, but to make a collapsed side palette, you have to drag it from its “special place”—its tab (where the palette name is). Or, you may not be dragging it far enough. Right before it feels like you're about to drag it off the edge of the screen (Mac users) or application window (PC users), just a few pixels away, you'll see the palette outline preview flip up, showing its collapsed position. Then you can release the mouse button to collapse the palette.
