To enable multi-monitor users to get the most out of their data view, an optional Tool Palette window which allowed users to place their commonly used toolbars into a floating window that could be placed on another screen would be handy. Yes, you could create a new toolbar an load heaps of tools onto it and put it wherever, but a better solution would be to drag existing toolbars to dock onto the floating window.
Something like the window below which could be moved around to a preferred location and which other toolbars could be docked to as required.
I agree entirely.  Right now the options are to either clutter your screen with tool bars like this:


Or to have them all flaoting in a confusing disorganized manner off to one side like this:

I am all about a custom floating tool palette to dock my tools in and clean up my real estate.

I'd love to see something like this in Pro! All tools originating from the attribute window dockable together in a grouping with values entered and saved for future use (field calculator, select by attributes, find, etc.).
