 2    Various jEdit and plugin
 3    windows can be docked into the view for convenience. Dockable windows
 4    have a popup button in their top-left corner. Clicking this button displays a menu with commands for docking the window in one of four sides of the view.
 5   </p><p>
 6    On each side of the text area where there are docked windows, a strip of buttons is shown. There is a button for activating each docked window, as well as a close box and a popup menu button, which when clicked shows a menu for moving or undocking the currently selected window. The popup menu also contains a command for opening a new floating instance of the current window.
 7   </p><p>
 8    The commands in the <span><b class="guimenu">View</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guisubmenu">Docking</b></span>
 9    menu move keyboard focus between docking areas.
10   </p><p>
11    Dockable windows can also be configured in the <span><b class="guilabel">Docking</b></span> pane of the <span><b class="guimenu">Utilities</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Global Options</b></span> dialog box.

13     Each dockable has three commands associated with it; one is part of the
14     menu bar and opens the dockable. The other two commands are:
15    </p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul type="disc"><li><p><span><b class="guimenuitem">Window Name
16     (Toggle)</b></span> - opens the dockable window if it is hidden, and
17     hide it if its already open.</p></li><li><p><span><b class="guimenuitem">Window Name
18     (New Floating Instance)</b></span> - opens a new instance of the
19     dockable in a floating window, regardless of the docking
20     configuration. For example, this can be used to view two
21     different directories side-by-side in two file system browser windows.</p><p>
22     A new floating instance can also be opened from the dockable window's popup menu.
23     </p></li></ul></div><p>
24     These commands cannot be invoked from the menu bar. However, they can be
25     added to the tool bar or context menu, and given keyboard shortcuts;
