btw, I just had this problem myself. Homesite crashed once then when I restarted everything was undocked.
Even though I knew from my own notes how to redock most of them, the snippets tab was a bugger.
Oddly enough, *sometiems* the snippets tab will give you that move-to menu option to let you re-dock, but not always. Seems related to the order you redock tabs. Perhaps you just need to not have it be last.
Anyway, I had to add in some of those registry values (while HomeSite was closed) to redock it.
I'll add those details to my faq as soon as I get chance.
One note to add to that, it seems that the DockHost value for the tabs is sometimes slightly different.
If you look at the keys under
you'll see that one of them is something like
AllaireTabDockForm0 or AllaireTabDockForm1
The DockHost values for the tabs should match that, so when you recreate the
DockHost string make sure it matches.
On a related matter, I noticed that there is a registry value :
I vaguely recall this being something to lock all the tabs so you can't undock them.
I can't find that in the HomeSite user interface at all. I'll test the registry value,
but does anyone know how you would change it in the HS UI?
