Is there a way to control the position of the windows panel open location within InDesign?

I have had this problem for a while now with the latest version of Indesign. Latest update did not fix it. I normally work with the application frame turned off, I like being able to access my desktop quickly.

I keep all the windows/panels docket to the right side of the screen (tools on the left). The problem is when clicking on the panel names they open to the right, not left. This has them off screen. When undocked and floating they still open on the right and I can't find any options to change this. I have deleted complete, trashed preference files, uninstalled with every single supporting file removed, both using the Adobe uninstall method as well as another app to completely remove everything. Nothing has fixed this problem. 

Computer is a 5K iMac running Big Sur 11.6.5 with latest version of Indesign.

Hi Ben__P, We are sorry for the frustration, and thanks for sharing the video for a better understanding of the problem. This seems to be expected behavior as the panel window will open depending upon the location it is present within InDesign. If you move the panel windows to the right and then open the panel names, it will open on the left and vice versa.  However, we understand your concern, and we'll make sure to pass on your feedback to the product team if you want; you can also submit ...

Hi Ben__P,

 

We are sorry for the frustration, and thanks for sharing the video for a better understanding of the problem. This seems to be expected behavior as the panel window will open depending upon the location it is present within InDesign. If you move the panel windows to the right and then open the panel names, it will open on the left and vice versa. 

 

However, we understand your concern, and we'll make sure to pass on your feedback to the product team if you want; you can also submit your feedback on the InDesign UserVoice and share the link here for tracking purposes.

This way, you will keep getting all the updates related to this feature, and other users can also upvote, which would help us prioritize.

 

I hope it helps.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

I think you ignored what I typed in my original post. This is not the correct answer. These panels open to the right even when the panels are docked to the right of the screen, hence they open off screen and are completely unusable. The only way they work properly is when I have Indesign with "Application frame" selected. I have attached an image that hopefully helps understand the issue.
