That's actually documented - if you look in the help for "docking" it
will tell you about this technique. It docks the pane wherever it was
last docked.

In my experimentation I have also found that there are "sweet spots" on
the sides of the main window; if you drag the slides pane to just the
right spot (and hold your mouth just so) a dotted outline will appear.
If you let go of the mouse button right then, the slides pane drops into
place, docked.

Thanks for your efforts!

Regards, K.
