Hello Messi,

Yes, it has been removed intentionally because it duplicates the functionality
of having the structure view docked to the bottom half of the left side and
the project view at the top half.

Hmm, sorry for the stupid question, I somehow missed "Split mode" in
Diana (?) and it seemed to only start working when I re-created the
project (iws file?).

Otherwise, really cool!

kind regards,

Messi

Hi Dmitry,

There was overlapping, not duplication and I'm already starting to miss that feature.

Let me explain what is no longer available.

Suppose I want both project and structure views open most of the time.
In split mode, if I press hide side (to temporarily maximize editor) and then press the project view button, I don't see the structure view anymore.
I have to also open the structure view manually.

Not a very big deal, just a small annoyance.

Maybe we can have that by introducing a "linked split mode" where in our case, if you press the "project view" button you will also get the structure view.

This can even be the default because it's how I would expect it to work (I closed all views, I open all views).

What do you think?

Hello Cristian-Vasile,

One workaround is to maximize the editor by double-clicking the tab title.
In this case, if you double-click it again, both toolwindows will be restored
correctly.

Is it possible to maximise the editor other than by double-clicking on
the tab? I have tab placement set to 'None'.

Aha, perfect! Thanks. I didn't associate 'Windows' with toolwindows.
