Showing, Docking and Hiding Windows

Some windows in LibreOffice are dockable, such as the Navigator window. You can move these windows, re-size them or dock them to an edge.

Docking and Undocking Windows

To dock a window, do one of the following:

These methods can also be used to undock a currently docked window.

Showing and Hiding Docked Windows


Click the button on the edge of the docked window to show or hide the docked window. The AutoHide function allows you to temporarily show a hidden window by clicking on its edge. When you click in the document, the docked window hides again.


Docking toolbars and windows by drag-and-drop depends on your system's window manager settings. You must enable your system to show the full window contents when you move a window, instead of showing just the outer frame.
