Enable error / transformation problem panels floatable / relocatable

Post by RBVanDyke » Tue Mar 31, 2020 7:48 am

IF there are transformation errors or problems, THEN oXygen XML 22 displays a fixed-position panel to the right side of the application. The panel is the full height of the oXygen XML window and cannot be floated or dragged into a different location. Among other things, to see the full length of the error message one must perform some hand motions and choices.

It would be a very good enhancement to enable these panels to be floated and/or attached to other parts of the oXygen XML window. As it is (at least for me), the errors / problems panels are clumsy annoyances rather than helpful / useful...

Cheers & thanks,

Hi Riley,

About a week ago we added the possibility in our code to float the Result view anywhere in Oxygen's user's interface. This improvement will be available in Oxygen 22.1 in about 2 months. In the meantime you can go to the main menu "Window->Reset layout". This action should place the Results view in its default location (at the bottom of the application).

Regards,
Radu
