I've seen this pop up here and there in forums but I would really, REALLY like Scrivener panels that could be undocked. I can't make use of both my screens with the current Scrivener and having lots of real estate is so important to be able to plot a story and see everything in one glimpse across multiple screens.

Requests for this date back to 2013 and I know I'm not the only one who needs this so, please could you include this in the next update?...

Thanks so much....

I'm afraid there are no plans for this, and it's certainly not something that could just be dropped into the next update, as it would require a complete redesign and re-code of the entire UI from the ground up, with an alternative window being created for all possible UI elements.
All the best,
