Description Andres Betts 2022-06-02 01:50:21 UTC
In the floating panel section under edit mode, the button for floating panel is clicked once for enabling floating panel and a second time to disable floating panel. When the user enters floating panel and clicks Maximize Panel, the panel does nothing.

I think we need to think these buttons as opposites of each other. If floating panel undoes maximize panel, then maximize panel should undo floating panel. This would be more congruent with the options we present users with.

It doesn't; they're not related at all.

I think your confusion comes from the fact that you the "Maximize Panel" button is clickable even when the panel is already maximized. It should probably be disabled when the panel is already maximized.
