Today I was working on measuring time "distances" in the timeline.  Every time I option-clicked to start measuring, a very large Instant Details pane opened, often obscuring the items I was trying to drag between.

It looks like when the ID pane is closed opt-click in the Timeline opens it, and I imagine the size is large either because of a previously saved workspace from v. 9 or it was the last size you had open. I'm not sure why it opens in that situation, but once you resize it, it should re-open at the same size. That may be somewhat less obtrusive for you.

Thanks, Rick, that does help.  The odd thing is that the "Make ID a floating palette" option does not stick for Atlas windows/zones, whereas it does for my text zones.

Thanks for looking into this, Lorinda.  There are a couple of issues/bugs going on here:  First, Accordance automatically opens the Instant Details when measuring so you can see the distances, but this has a variety of conceptual problems, so we'll hopefully improve it soon.  Second, the maps should definitely not open an instant details if there is already one floating!  So thats definitely a bug we'll also fix asap.

Thanks for the explanation, and the confirmation that there is a bug at work.
