How to disable docker?

Tue Nov 20, 2018 8:56 pm
Hi,

Brand new calligra user here, so please bear with me if I make no sense... I just would like to get rid of that giant docker that is eating up more than half my screen and gives me nothing much that I can use. Right now the page I am working on in calligrawords is literally 33% of the screen width. The rest is occupied by huge swaths of emptiness, a few buttons and some dropdown menus. This can't be right, can it? Running this on arch linux/swaywm (wayland).

In general, you can hide some dockers with the close button on the docker, or use Settings->Dockers.
Some standard dockers are not closable, but a trick is to detach the dockers and make it as small at possible.
If you are using words, there is a View->Distraction free mode (ctrl-shift-F), ctrl-shift-F to turn it off again.
You can also collect all dockers on one side with drag/drop.

Wow.... sounds like an awful lot of dragging and dropping to accomplish something that should be possible to accomplish by default. Guess I have to crawl back to libreoffice.

I use KWin and have set up a shortcut to toggle fullscreen mode. If that is possible in swaywm too, you can turn on the distraction free mode danders mentioned. That will hide all controls and switch to fullscreen, and if you use the window manager's toggle shortcut, the application will go back to windowed mode but the controls remain hidden.

It's still some kind of trick but just pressing two shortcuts should be quite fast.
