>From a previous discussion with Marcel I remember that the main docking bar previously rejected dropped system windows and accepted other morphs. For some reason the rejection of system windows is not working in 5.1.

Anyways, the "accept drops" checkbox should definitely be honored. :)

Some students in one of our courses regularly struggle with this and we show them the "context" menu on the world morph which has a checkbox for "Show main docking bar". When you uncheck and check it again the main docking bar is reset.

Interesting. How do you do that? Using one of the halos? Do you drag SystemWindows in there as well?

Do you agree that at least the „accept drops“ checkbox should be honoured. That way you could keep using the feature and others could avoid dragging something accidentially into the docking bar.
