Simplified Accessory Window

You can dock or undock the Accessory window. The docked Accessory window (default) stays in the main window so it is not hidden behind other windows. You can easily restore a minimized Accessory window by clicking a glyph.

Benefits and Description

The Accessory window is easy to use for the following tasks:

While the docked Accessory window can be repositioned and resized, it remains within the main window, ensuring it is not hidden behind other windows. A minimized Accessory window appears as a glyph that you can click to open the window.

Using the configuration option accessory_window_display,  you can undock the Accessory window. If the component to be displayed in the undocked Accessory window is opened in a main window, a new Accessory window opens.

You can use the window's menu or the task bar to locate a undocked accessory window.
