Altium (Disable) Fractal Panel Grouping
« on: January 18, 2019, 02:49:22 pm »
I am having trouble getting the panels to stay where I want them.  I keep getting panels in the fractal grouping, and its pain to correct.  I have three monitors so I have no need for saving space.  Is there a way to disable fractal grouping, I combed the settings to no avail, but I thought someone else might have some insight how to prevent my panels from getting grouped this way.

Multiple panels in a group displayed at the same time.

I'm trying to have only tabbed groups, where only one panel shows at a time.  But it seems whenever I open a new panel, or rearrange a panel I get them go to the fractal groups instead.

then your option is to make them tabbed. you can have a tab group left and a tab group right.

I too run triplehead. one screen PCB , one schematic , one the rest ( Vault browser , scripts , chrome etc )
in schematic i have on the left a tabbed panel with projects and on the right properties
in pcb on the right : properties,  on the left : pcb filter and pcb

Hey cjurczak, to answer your question months later: I also have not found a way to disable fractal grouping.

One thing I found that helped reduce my frustration with windows sometimes getting stuck in fractal grouping is by saving my preferred panel arrangement in Preferences->System->View so I can load that arrangement when they get "out of whack"
