Is it 1981?

Right, so a mystery person has been on my machine overnight/ early in the morning and has messed up my InDesign panels by resizing them to ridiculous sizes. It wouldn't be too much of a problem, except I can't shrink them back down to a smaller and more sensible size...

In the screenshot below, it's the three panels to the right of the screen which are unable to be resized. If I drag and undock them from the side, they're still at that size with no option to resize. I've already tried the Reset Panels option from the Window > Workspace option in the menu to no avail.

Any ideas, folks?

When you hover over the edges of the panels you should see your cursor change to two smaller arrows, you can then click and hold to drag the panels to the size you require.

Not on the three problem panels. They seem to be stuck at that size with no option (as far as I can see) to resize them.

I thought that sounded a little too easy. It does seem as though this could be a bug, there's a thread over at the Adobe forums regarding this problem, deleting the prefs has helped some people.
