Unable to re-dock viewport window

Hi all,

I mistakenly (rushing) dragged out the viewports window from its dock and am now unable to put it back in place as there is no window tab to enable docking with. I have been looking for a way to re-set the viewport configuration to standard but can’t find this option anywhere.

So, my question is… How can I re-dock a window that has no tab?

Hi FirstParadox,

In the free floating Viewport window, click the small yellow arrow in the top-left corner. This will extend the tab.

Then drag the tab up to the Icon bar window and dock it on the lower quadrant the appears.

Thanks for getting back to me. However, This does not seem to work. Upon clicking the yellow tab I get the standard menu that you see on all windows, I.E. Maximise, Minimise, move. But when I select move all it does is change the mouse pointer to the move pointer but wont drag the window.

However, upon attempting this I changed the viewport (Window>Viewports>) to viewport 2 and this gave me the tab back and I was able to dock it.

The thanks still go to you as I would not have attempted this if it where not for your reply.

Thanks again.


Go to Window>Viewports and change your view port to Viewport 2 or 3 for example. This will give you the Tab back and allow docking.

Just in case you’re pedantic like me and want to get all 4 viewports back to a functional state…

Goto to Window > Reset layout

or drag another window into the viewport window and attach it to the top. then you can click the orange triangle again and move it.
