Lightroom: Please end the endless scrolling

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Floating panels/ other Adobe products

In most Adobe applications, you have the possibility to undock specific windows. See for example this in Premiere Pro:

This window can then be positioned anywhere one wants, including an another screen.

I often use more than one screen, but unfortunately Lightroom doesn't really support any useful multiscreen features.

Instead of being able to undock all the different editing tools in develop mode, I spend most of my editing time in Lightroom endlessly scrolling. (I checked and its about 50% of my editing time!!)

Please Adobe, enable this feature! It would be great to have one screen for the full screen image and clutter all the other screens with the editing tools.

Isn't it ironic that using Lightroom, as a photographer, one hardly looks at one's photos in full screen?...

Thank you for any consideration!

Why not use the Solo Mode? Solo Mode keep all panels below Histogram but one closed.

Thank you Arnold for your suggestion. I did try that for a while, but then you spend your time opening and closing sections. Maybe I should give it another try, but that is still far from an ideal solution in my opinion!

Agree. Sometimes you want to see your settings at a glance, not reopen. I think it comes down to, I want panels where I want them!

I also agree. Undocking panels and using multiple monitors would be really helpful!
