Debug Layout Options [RESOLVED]

I think the new debug layout has potential, but the two rows bother me.
Is there an option to arrange all the tabs on one row?
Or to drag and drop the tabs onto different rows?
Hoow about adding an option in the settings for 'Classic View' for those people who don't like it at all so that they can revert to the previous style if they want to?

You mean you want the "classic view" with tabs or you want to see all
the four views in the same row?

If, say, Console bothers you you can middle-click on it thus making it
hidden. You can also maximize it with double-click and then hide it ->
every time you restore it from the minimized state you will get it
maximized. As you are done with looking at console - hide it with
middle click again.

Does this scenario helps you in any way? I realize that it's not that
intuitive than switching tabs, but we have many people unhappy with the
tabs as well.

Classic should be the v6 method. The main problem is that you must
have the frame open to step. I rarely use the frame.

7.0.3 has fixed it!
The tabs Debugger and Console are much better :)
