Re: Vegas 12 new feature is driving me mad!

The thing is - you can still get tabs:

Drag one window over another window:

1. If you are to the right and approach the top, it will add them left/right
2. If you are to the bottom and approach the left side, it will add them top/bottom
3. If you move it to the upper left corner, it will tab them

It also previews the arrangement before you let go of the mouse button so you can just continue moving the mouse if you don't like how it previews. Just don't let go of the left mouse button.

Edward, we still don't know if that's what was wanted. I was guessing - hence I made a question. And yes, if that IS what was wanted - Quoting Mr Punch: "That's the way to do it!"

Re: Vegas 12 new feature is driving me mad!

Edward, thanks for that, it helps but doesn't stop the problem. Grazie is right, all I'm trying to do is stop two windows sitting one above the other. I want to eliminate the vertical abilities of the windows and just have the horizontal layout with tabs as it was prior to Vegas 12, each window sitting side by side with each other.
If that can't be achieved, well, it was nice of everyone to pitch in and I will just have to make do. Seems strange that we don't appear to have the choice to turn this new feature off.

Chris, sorry to come in late but I've been following this and suspect that we still don't have any idea what you are talking about. As far as I can see Vegas 12 didn't take anything away from 11 in regard to layout. To me it seems totally flexible - you can have as many windows as you want, docked vertically, horizontally, undocked, tabbed, any which way, it's just up to you, and you can save the layouts. Like Edward suggests, grab the little dots at top left in each window and drag them around.

Save layouts maybe?
