A dialog box stack refers to a series of dialog boxes snapped together at their bottom and top edges such that they form a stack. The following image contains a dialog box stack with Layers dialog box opened in the middle.

You can manipulate the dialog boxes in a dialog box stack in the following ways:

  • Move the entire dialog box stack by clicking and dragging the top-most dialog box's title bar.
  • Click on any dialog box's title bar to minimize or maximize a dialog box within the stack.
  • Move a dialog box to the right, left, or down to break it from the stack.
  • Reinsert the dialog box at the end of the stack by snapping the dialog box to the bottom edge of the stack.
  • Reinsert the dialog box in the middle of the stack by moving sideways into a middle position.
  • Snap the entire dialog box stack to the screen by moving it to the outer edge of the screen.
