Um - nope. No "View" menu anywhere to be seen. Can you describe
precisely where you would expect to find it?

There *is* one for the "Tasks" pane, which does provide an "Undock"
checkbox, but that menu is not present anywhere on my "Slide Pane".

HOWEVER: I found that if I drag the undocked slide pane over the task
pane and drop it, it docks beside or above the task pane. When docked,
it has no "View" menu either. No amount of effort seems to get it back
where it belongs, on the left side of the main window.

Any other ideas?
