Why does the snapping pallet work differently?

The palettes came in at different times, I think that palette has yet to be upgraded completely.

From what I understand, eventually all of them will be upgraded and function in the same manner (Mac users want this badly as well), but I'll confirm that it wasn't a mistake.

For me it looks like this :





And you can see the problem with the bottom palette over whole screen width.

My Basic Palette has about 100 icon entries to not waste too much space ;)


I think in previous VW versions Attribute and Snapping Palettes were also not dock-able.

Anyone else think the GUI is in need of an update / overhaul?


i know change is scary - but the VWX UI does feel rather outdated now. Hasn't changed significantly since I can remember. 15 years +


100% agree.  Long called for.  I feel like there have been multiple threads about this, but I wasn't able to find one.

Archicad did a nice little facelift this year.  My hope was VW was going to as well.  I think (hope) something is in the works...

Does anyone know why the snapping palette is different than all the other palettes?For example, compared to the tool sets palette:

The layout of the title bar:




The tool sets, can be docked to the sides of your window like this. But the snapping palette can't:



If you want to dock it somewhere it can only be added like a menu command bar. And I don't think that any other palette can fill the space in the extra bar that is created by the snapping palette.




Any reasons for this different behavior?

Thank you,
