After not being able to find a way to add the Properties bar to the Quick Tools area, I had to do a search to see if others have had inquiries/issues with this. I found a very similar question to yours in the first result (user wanted Typewriter and Properties). It appears that the Properties toolbar will remain floating for the unforeseeable future (maybe corrected in Acrobat XI?)...

That above link attempts to rationalize the logic/illogic behind why docking to the toolbars area is different now... I [personally] attribute it also to the inclusion of the right-side navigation panel amongst other UI changes. You can see from the screenshot below how moving the Typewriter and Properties toolbars just float over the existing Quick Tools toolbar now instead of just docking themselves like with previous versions...

 Floating toolbars now.

Go to View > Show/HideToolbar Items > Quick Tools. From the Customize Quick Tools window that appears, expand Content then click on Add or Edit Text Box and then click the arrow button that is facing the right. Click OK. This should keep the Typewriter in your toolbar area.

That keeps the typewriter button in the toolbar area.  My question was how to dock they Typewriter Toolbar and how to dock the Properties Toolbar.
It is maddening, because these toolbars right now are floating toolbars that appear literally anywhere on my two monitors.  It would help if I could dock them permanently so I'm not spending time trying to find them.

This is very odd, as in A9 you simply drag it to the free space on the toolbar section and both (Typewriter & properties) just insert...

yobri, do you know why Adobe has changed this in A10? I cannot test this here unfortunately but it seems illogical...

While I do not like the answer, that is not your problem - it is Adobe's.
Thank you for providing the link.  It both "explained" Adobe's reasoning and let me know that I'm not the only one that feels frustrated with this behavior and also feels like it is a step backward.
