Why aren't my panels pinning to the side?

I don't seem to see any problems in your video. How would you like the panels to behave?

By @Hendy374084080dng

 

Did you use the detailed instructions on how to do this posted by several other members? (Frankly, I wasn't even aware of this as I don't use apllication frame.)

Drag a panel until you see a blue line on the anchoring element (other panel, work area edge, etc.) Let go; the panel should dock there.

 

Drop other panels into that one for tabbed docking.

The key to docking in the Creative Cloud applications, including InDesign, is to watch where the tip of the arrow is. You are not getting the blue vertical line when you drag the right set of panels to the left side panels because your cursor isn't going far enough to the left. It doesn't matter where the panel is, it matters where the cursor is. 

 

Yes, you do want to watch for the blue line, but you need to get the cursor to touch what you're docking to.

Good, er, pointing point. I guess I think of it as being a fairly well-designed self-teaching aspect, but maybe it's too cryptic to just "get."

By the way, that blue glowing color is officially called "the drop zone" but it used to be named "the landing zone" in past versions.

As a visual learner, I normally post a screen shot or short video to illustrate my answers, hoping to help the other visual learners out there. I was out of the office last week celebrating the arrival of my newest grandchild so wasn't able to, but Mike's reply reminded me.

 

Here is a video, @Hendy374084080dng of my cursor hitting the blue Drop Zone. 

 

Thanks, @Mike Witherell! Both terms were new to me! 😊
