The Status Bar

The status bar gives you timely status messages and details as you work on your design. By default the status bar is placed underneath the top menu. You can place the status bar at the bottom of the application just below the viewport. To change the position of the status bar right click on the status bar and select the position of the status bar from the context menu.

The status bar cannot be floated by the panels but you can I hide it by selecting hide from the status bars context menu. To reassure the status bar click on the view status bar in the panels menu.
