I have the same problem, my panes came off after a crash which ruined all my settings. Now I cannot dock the panes anymore and I cannot find ‘workspace settings’. How do I fix this?
Assuming we’re talking about the panes which you normally see in the left and right docking areas..
It’s easy; if you have no panes at all then simply go to the Window menu and select “Panes”. Select the pane you want and it’ll become visible on screen. Now all that’s left to do is drag it to either the left or right part of your screen. You’ll notice when you’re there when you see a “strip” light up. Simply let the mouse button go and your docking area is there.
Now; you probably want to have more than one pane in your viewport. Easy too: right click the light area of the now visible docking area and select the “add pane” option; just select a pane you want and presto.
Changing order is easy as well: simply drag and drop.
And you can repeat this process for the other sides of the screen as well. Start out with one, dock it, and then use right click to add more panes to your, at that time, visible docking area.
Hope this helps.
And once you’re done you might want to press F4 so save your current layout. That way you don’t have to bother with all this again, but can simply re-load it (using Windows -> Workspace -> Select layout…).
