Align As a Dialog rather than a pod

It seems that the Align Objects toolbox, which as of the 2015 version was a dockable pod, has as of the 2017 revision become a non-modal window that can no longer be docked. Given that the related Distribute Objects toolbox is a pod, I think that this has to be a simple oversight. Does that seem correct? If so, how do I go about filing a bug report?

Well, there are few x-pods in 2017. You can request the Align dialog box to return to pod-status here: Tracker.

Thank you for the update! I've submitted bug FrameMaker-2462 about this issue (albeit filed under FrameMaker 2015, as they apparently haven't gotten around to adding 2017 on the bug submission form yet).

Thank you! There is no doubt dockable pods are timesavers. In long document layout, saving a few clicks here and there adds up quickly!

I've also run into this problem. We often need to perform several alignments on objects to obtain the desired result. This change results in a great loss on efficiency because:

  • You need to select objects before you open the Align window.
  • Once the window is opened, you can no longer modify your selection, unless you close the window, change your selection, and reopen the window.
  • Once you align an object or a group of objects, you need to reopen the window to perform another alignment.

Is there any plan to fix this before Adobe stops delivering fixes for FM 2017?
