Possible to detach and float a window?

Instead of attaching the editior's window to the IDE, is it possible to detach and float them instead?
Useful when you constantly need to reference a particular file and don't want to mix them together with all the other files you have open.

Hi there,

Yes, you can.

Just grab editor tab with your mouse and drag it outside of IDE -- new detached editor window will be created (which can have multiple tabs).

Perfect! Was in full screen hence the tab kept attaching itself back :^O when I tried.
