Floating Panes

Postby DawnTreader » March 13th, 2016, 10:26 pm


This is an amazing idea and I am glad I ran into this as my sons and I like playing games but cant always have the board game in question and sometimes need to "save it" in the middle of a game.

Anyways, the interface is ok, but I was thinking that it would be very helpful if all "panes" were floating. For those of us who have multiple monitors it would be nice to be able to pull out all the panes and have just the main "board" on the main screen.

look forward to seeing more improvements in this awesome software!

I believe this is what you're looking for.

Start your module, open File -> Preferences and, under the General tab, you'll see an option to "Use combined application window". Uncheck this. Close and reopen the module.

This will force your game to open all windows as separate panes so that they can be manipulated independently.
