    This is currently on their to do list https://github.com/docker/kitematic/issues/1005 and https://github.com/docker/kitematic/pull/992

    So at the moment it isn’t possible from Kitematic.

    You can do much more with docker-machine but the trade-off is that it is a command-line interface

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
