Basically you click and drag, close and open, combine and whatnot to arrange things like you want. Once you get them arranged, you may click File > Save Environment and save the file as a .RHS file.
If it will help any, I've uploaded a file for you that arranges things as close as I can get them to the older workflow. You may download it by opening this link and saving the .ZIP file. You will then need to extract the .RHS file and save it somewhere. After you get it extracted and saved, you then click File > Load Environment and navigate to where the .RHS file exists.
See if that comes close to offering what you would like.
Thanks very much Rick,
I think your environment will be a big improvement over the default for my style of working. But, I would still love to see some documentation or a tutorial on how to arrange the pods. I tried all sorts of dragging-and-dropping techniques but couldn't even get close to what I wanted to achieve.
Here is another question: In previous versions, you could move the cursor focus from window to window by way of keyboard commands. I haven't found a way to do this in version 7. Does anyone know anything about this?
And (a grip), I am very frustrated to find that if you double-click a topic in the Project Manager pod, the cursor
does not move to your newly opened topic in the HTML editor. Rather you have to additionally click in the editor.
Pressing the Enter key does move the focus to the editor, but since I haven't found a way to move the focus to
the Project Manager by way of the keyboard, that behavior isn't of much use.
Alan, I had problems trying to arrange my pods, too, until I figured out what the visual clues mean. When you drag a pod by its title bar, you see a gray box. As you drag the box around, it changes shape to show where and how it will land when you release the mouse.
Floating box = free-floating (undocked) pod
Box snaps to half of a pod = pod docks above, below, or to one side of the target
Box snaps to whole pod and has a tab at the bottom = pod docks as a tab on the target pod
Sometimes it's tricky to find the right spot for the result you want. Sometimes you have to drag a few pods out of the way first.
I haven't found any built-in keyboard commands for switching pods, but you can assign a shortcut to a pod.
1. Right-click the toolbar and choose Customize.
2. Click the Keyboard tab.
3. Select Pods in the Category list.
4. Select a pod, and assign a shortcut to it.
That changes the focus to the pod. Opens the pod, too, if it was closed. That's not exactly what you're looking for, but it might serve as a fix
