Workshop tree and Field tree have become undocked

Hi All ,

I have 11.5 and have somehow undocked my Workshop tree

and Field tree in the Formula Editor. Now all my reports are that way !

Is there a reset button or something ?

I couldn't find anything in the Crystal environment

for something as simple as redocking a window.

Help 😊

    Hi Jimmy,

    There is a registry key that can reset the toolbars and dock them back.

    Before you edit the registry, please back it up and make sure u2018Allow Dockingu2019 is selected for the particular tree that is not docked. Just right-click the blank area of the floating tree and check if u2018Allow Dockingu2019 is selected.

    Go to start > run > regedit.

    Browse through HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Business Objects > Suite 11.5 > Crystal Reports > Formula Workshop.

    Under this, the keys ToolBar-Bar1 to ToolBar-Bar3 are for each of the three trees. Depending on which one of them is undocked, click on the correct ToolBar-Bar1/2/3 keys. If you click on one of these keys, there should be a value on the right called u2018WindowNameu2019; this will show what tree the current key belongs to.

    Once you select the right ToolBar key, on the right side look for u2018DockingStyleu2019 and set it to u2018f000u2019. Also look for u2018MRUFloatStyleu2019 and set it to u20180u2019.

    Restart CR and open the Formula Workshop, the tree would still be undocked. To Dock it, just double-click the tree.

    Hope this helps!
