Cinegy Capture Control is very easy to manage due to its fully customizable interface where all panels are scalable and most of them are collapsible.

  • via drag-and-drop;

  • via making the panel undockable.

Dockable

To dock a floating panel, select the "Dockable" command from its context menu. Then click the title bar of the panel and drag until you see the visual hints (see the screenshot). When the desired position of the dragged panel is reached, move the pointer over the corresponding portion of the hint. Destination area will be shaded. To dock the panel to the indicated position, release the mouse button.
