Customizing your workspace in Premiere Elements 11

I have recently upgraded from Premiere Elements 9 to Premiere Elements 11, and I do like some of the new features of the layout, however I wish I could customize the layout...

I like having the preview window be front and center, but I don't like how the Project Assets window stays open & covers it.

So, is there either
A). A way to move the preview screen to the right,
B). Make the Project Assets window auto-close after I have dragged my clip out of it? (I don't feel the need to have this open to see all my clips constantly...only need to open it when I need to grab another clip

And is there a way to keep the effects & transitions open in their own window/box? I sometimes wait until the end to add all my transitions, but I can't click & drag multiple transitions, I have to open the Transitions menu, find it, then click & drag.

I know Elements 9 had where you could drag & drop the panels where you wanted...I believe the setting to be able to do this was "show docking headers"...I think this opiton should be available in 11 to be able to move the panels whereve I want.

And I REALLY dislike how the "Transition Adjustments" box (see below) stays open after I have dragged & dropped a transition where I want! It asks where you want it aligned, but isn't that why I have the ability to drag it to where I want? Or it lets you adjust the duration, but I already have my default duration set in my settings, and I can click & drag the ends of it to adjust...!

Is there a way to make this box not pop up?
