    1. What is the difference between these two snapping positions? They seem to do exactly the same but there are two different indicators when I move left and right.

    Why can I make these snap in place:

    2. But if I place the vertical toolbar all the way to the top then there is no way for them to snap in this position?

    For that matter, why is there 0 horizontal snapping? Not sure why vertical and horizontal snapping rules are different?

    3. Why isn't this able to snap?

    4. There are many draw order issues:

    Tools is on top here, but the buttons are behind the other toolbar's buttons.

    5. Finally, I know you said in a different thread that snapping via border instead of mouse position has issues, but mouse position also feels bad FYI.

    Hey! :) I'll do my best to answer each:

    1 - Looks like a bug, you should only see one indication. Thanks for the note!
    2 and 3 - Ah, this is because you are always docking to a corner of the view - not actually to other toolbars. So, think of the Overlay system as a game HUD, where you can pin info to the corners, and they'll push each other around as necessary (ie, expanding or appearing/disappearing). Seems we need to clarify this!
    4 - Known bugs, fixes on the way! :)
    5 - Yeah, it was a compromise for sure. Good news is, I'm working on updates specifically for this, in 22.1.

    hey! :) Yup, that's fixed in Alpha 20. Actually, it changes to just the "tools" icon, to simplify things and avoid confusion of using the same icon in multiple places ...
