Making settings/ entities/ display windows floating

As it is now they seem to be fixed in middle of window, when opened, and most of situation obscuring the data in the topline! I would really find it useful if these windows could be moved freely. I use Scrivener and custom meta-data. Since I have many characters that must be typed exact, I normally have AEON as "background" so I can sneak-peek the correct names/arc value. If these windows were floatable it will give better workflow for me in this situation. Palle GreyT

I'm really hoping that they address the real root of your request, which is that entity sync needs an overhaul. You shouldn't have to keep both programs open to maintain consistency. I have found that with the current versions AT2 and S2 that I do my entity assignments over in the relationship view in AT2. I get to click one mouse button to add a character and I don't have to worry about typos causing AT2 character clones.

Hi, We have had this requested before, so it is on our list of features we might add in the future. Jess

To razyr: I make 'all my asignments' in scrivener using meta-data fields. this works fine for me. the problem I encounter in these matters are when an entity ( I do research from the net) is spelled slightly different like Steve instead af Stephen... this is part of my job to correlate such instances. My ultimate wish would be Scrivener to have autocompletion for meta-data, but they don't do it.

I asked about the auto-completion for metadata fields in Scrivener 3. It's not possible as those are just simple text boxes that lack any sort of hook to add extra functions. So that's a definite "not going to happen" for S3.
