Hello, 

I'm having an issue with my project browser, it will only dock horizonatally to the top of the screen as seen in the image. I need to get it back to the vertical position. This is really annoying and yes, I've watched the youtube video. It does not matter where my mouse is.

Yes, it does matter where your mouse is.  After the browser is in view, you can drag it off the top and then to the side (NOT TOP OF THES NISDE - part way down will work.)

lmao, what I mean by it not mattering where my mouse is, it that no matter where my mouse, the project browser docks horizontally. Do you understand? 

The reason that I'm posting here is that after watching the instructional video of docking the project browser, reading the trouble shooting help guild on autodesk 360 and trying to reboot under default start up, I still cannot get the project browser or properties dialog to dock in any position other than horizontally. No matter where I move my curser. Meaning I placed my curser on the side of the screen and it still docked horizontally instead of vertically. 

Please carefully read the questions.

Your answer is exactly what is NOT working. I have never run into this problem with Revit before. 

Please re-read my question and response, it does not matter as in: I am placing my curser on the side and not the top, half way down or where ever and it is still snapping in horizontally. Do you have any other suggestions?

Did you hoover over the top of the browser, right click to grab it and pull it down from the top then drag it to the side?

YES! that's what I have been trying. It seems that regardless of where my curser is, the browser either continues to float or snaps to horizontally. It's really frustrating and I've resorted to just leaving the browser on the second monitor while the drawing is on the other. (working with two screens).

Regardless as to where I drag the project browser, either the side, top, corner, etc, it either floats or snaps to the top horizontal. 

Going to close out of everything and reboot the computer.

    1. Optional: To prevent a window from automatically docking while you drag it, hold down the CTRL key.
Important: When moving dockable windows, it helps to pay attention to the cursor position and the visual cues. For example, say that the Project Browser and Properties palette are currently undocked and you want them to be stacked and docked on the left. To dock the Project Browser on the left, position the cursor in the title bar, and drag the window until the cursor is touching the edge of the Revit interface on the left. The outline of the window gives you a preview. Using the same method, drag the Properties palette. Position the cursor on the lower edge of the title bar of the docked Project Browser, and notice in the preview of the window that the palettes will stack one above the other. (If you position the cursor within the title bar however, above the lower edge, the palettes will display as overlapping tabbed windows.)

If you are trying to dock to windows on the side of revit you need to dock one and then grab the second one and hover your cursor at the left of the screen just below the the title bar of the already docked window.

Rebooted the computer and the problem dissolved. Thank you all for the tips, this was incredibly annoying and cumbersome to work around. I'll try to holding the control key down if it happens again.
