So I am not sure what it is really called but I know it as the N panel where you click the N key and the panel opens on the right side. There are tabs there that when you click one another flyout shows that tools properties panel. I have this stuck open and want to close it back to the N panel but no clue how to do that? What is unintuitive is for some reason there is this box of dots at the top right that if I grab them I can tear off the panel but when I release it snaps back, so unclear what the purpose of being able to tear off a panel if I have no control over said panel when I release the mouse? So how do I close the flyout panel or prevent it from being persistent?
For an example of what I mean, if I click N it shows the panel with tabs of tools. Say I click the View or Tools tab, another flyout appears to the left for its parameters. Logic tells me if I click the same tab again that panel will collapse but no, nothing happens and now the only thing I can do is click N to collapse the whole panel, but when I reopen it the last flyout I had used (View, Tools, Items, etc…) is also still open and I want that to be closed.
