It is easy! ;-)

The principle is that dragged to container area windows are docked on the top 
level container. In order to dock to an embedded container drag to the grip 
of the container. In order to switch to tabbed layout drag the grip of a 
child to the center of the container, in order to change the split direction 
drag the grip of a child to the opposite container side.
If you start from scratch best is to first combine the embedded containers in 
floating mode.

I do not recommend to use the docking area of the main window for more than 
the debugger butttons. The "command central" should be small. I suggest to 
use different floating panels for different tasks, one for the debug windows 
(threads, stack, watches...), one for source editor and compiler messages and 
one for the forms, possibly with sub tabs for data modules and visible forms 
and possibly the object inspector.
