Floating panels vs. resizable splitter

In Adobe apps, you often find all auxiliary windows appearing as floating
windows - palettes, properties, layers etc.

In Microsoft apps, you often find the auxiliary windows docked to the sides
of the main window with movable splitters between them.

Which approach you like better and why? Do you think one can combine the
both approaches? I am curious how it is usually implemented in Mac apps (I
haven't got one yet)?

Select items in a paginated list

I have a paginated list of items. The user selects an item by clicking on a
checkbox. The checkbox selection, by default only applies to the items on
that page. So if you select 5 items on the first page and then navigate to
the second to select a few more, the items on the first page do not get
considered for any actions while still on the second page.
I'm working on an 'expert' tool, where the desire is to be able to select
items on multiple pages (assume there is no way to filter all of results on
the same page).

You decide - Screen Size

Sorry for bringing up a pesky off-topic issue again, but...

These screen size discussions ignore mobile devices.

Any photo-sharing apps out there for architects-designers?

Hi All,

I am working on building this web-based application for my thesis project. Essentially it will enable architects & designers to do the following:

1.Upload work-related pictures to a central webspace .

2. Attach metadata to them such as time, project, group of people, location etc.
3. Annotate them using text as well as audio and doodles / drawing marks.

4. Search these pictures along various dimensions.

5. Share these with a designated group of colleagues.

I will be particularly exploring innovative ways of data visualization, as well as information display.
