Is there a way to open to a floating window straight from the passage guide? All I can find is a two-step process--to open it and then open in a floating window. 

The ability to go straight to a floating window would be nice, either through a right click or a drop down menu where the remove button is.

I can't see any direct way to do this from the PG but if you already have a floating window open you can drag resources to it from the PG and dock them there.

So once the floating window is set up you can do it.

Holding Shift while you click the link will open to a floating window, at least on Mac.

EDIT: BTW, this is also true of opening tools/resources from the command box. The only drawback is that you can't hit shift+enter, but need to hold shift while you mouse-click the item.

Thanks for the useful tip, and I promise to never again insinuate that you are a Winders user Embarrassed
