Put docker panel in Popup Palette

Uses the side panel in the Popup Palette to borrow the widget of the selected docker while the panel is open. If the docker itself is open, it shows a message explaining where the widget has gone. The On-Canvas Brush Editor formerly in this panel is converted into a docker, and chosen by default. The list of dockers shown in the combobox is configurable.




  • The config dialog uses a generic version of KisDlgBrushHudConfig (the on-canvas brush editor's config), called KisDlgListPicker. I'm not sure whether it's a good idea to make it a generic class. If it is, it probably needs better implementation (and a better name?), and it would also need refactoring BrushHud to use it.
  • Some of the dockers (Animation Timeline, Tool Options, Recorder) aren't sized very well when inside the panel. I'm not sure how to fix that- may need changes to those dockers' sizing?
  • The Channels docker's widget doesn't seem to show anything unless the docker is shown, so there is a workaround to show it. I don't know why that happens.

Test Plan

Open Popup Palette, open the docker panel with the button on the right. Add dockers to the combobox with the config button's dialog, scroll through them. If the docker itself is also being shown, it should have a message shown while the widget is being borrowed. The list of dockers and the currently selected one should be remembered in the config.

Formalities Checklist
