Tutorial: Docking HeroBlade panels

Caveat: Panel locations and dockability are highly configurable, so if your computer has been used to run HeroBlade before, the panels may (initially) show up in a different location than as described in this tutorial. To proceed with the tutorial, simply find the panel wherever it currently is, and proceed from there.

The above are all the main methods of docking panels. Feel free to experiment with configuration, to find something that you are comfortable with. A commonly used one in the HeroEngine office is to have all the frequently used panels open and docked together. Another common technique is to have two monitors, so that the HeroBlade viewport is visible in one, and all of the panels can be dragged to the other monitor. Sometimes it may be more efficient to have panels that can be kept open simultaneously, or to have different panels docked to different sides of the screen. Mix and match, and use whatever works best for you.  :)
