I'm trying to dock floating tool panels into my window, it just isnt working on either version of photoshop. I have window>application frame checked and I have 'enable floating document window docking' checked as well. Any feedback would be helpful thx.

I found a workaround to use workspace templates that are already docked and just configure those. Still though, if I completely undock the workspace, I cant redock it. Seems like something very simple that should work seamlessly  at this point considering how many iterations of photoshop have been made.

Seems like it was user error; i kept on trying to dock by pulling the panels towards the top of the page, instead of to the right side or bottom. Works now. Thanks.

Edit: As a warning for other users, I figured out the reason I was having this problem is because I'm using the Magnet app (Magnet – Window manager for Mac ) to arrange my windows, and it appears to hinder the functionality of rearranging panels in photoshop. So if you have to rearrange panels, make sure magnet is temporarily off.

I use windows so there is no Magnet Mac app.  You need to drag the tool bar to Phtoshop's Left or Right Windows frame and hold it there till the frame's edge turns blue then let the mouse  button go.  There is some delay before the frame turns blue.

Thank you. The answer to the 'non-docking' panel groups for me was in your sentence 'There is some delay before the frame turns blue.' I was expecting to see the blue docking confirmation line immediately on offering the panels up to the side of the window. It does take a few seconds to appear.
