I would use the floating views more but I have found that when I do, I lose control over my custom shortcuts that I have created (CTRl+L - linestring, Ctrl+O - offset line, Ctrl+E - Elevate). Is this a known issue? Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. I would like to be able to use a floating view and still have full control over my shortcuts.
There are a few shortcuts that I have created that just make it so much faster than scrolling through the tabs and I would rather sacrifice one view over losing these shortcuts.
