Exporting a docking setting

After a docking setting has been created or modified, you can export it as an XML file using the Export command on the Docking Manager dialog box. This allows you to distribute the docking setting to other members of your organization. For example, if a docking setting is missing a toolbar that is commonly used in your production process, you can add the toolbar to the docking setting and export it to a location available to other members of your team or organization.
