Floating panels

Post by dcrobertson » Sun Jul 29, 2018 5:31 am

Description of problem or question:
Hi all - been using handbrake for ages now. Works well. Recently, though, the Presets, Preview and Activity panels have become detached from the main window, and I cannot see how to re-attach them. Queue is still the same - it opens in the same window.

The screen shot on the Handbrake site has what I used to have - the presets panel on the right hand side of the window. I'd like to get my Handbrake back to this.

I have tried deleting my handbrake preferences.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Don't know what I did.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
First occurred in an earlier version - not sure which. Now have 1.1.1

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Kubuntu 18.04

They are not dockable windows.

Presets was re-designed so is now in-line under the source on the main window. So for the most part, you can close the floating preset pane. It's mostly for management functions now.

Preview / log have always been floating, although preview does have an in-line mini preview on the summary tab too
