idea 15 tabbed viewing debug run and version control windows

Answered

Hi 

Not sure what happened but now only one tool window is visible at a time. when showing the debug window the run window is hidden.

It wasnt like that before , I would like the tool windows to be tabbed at the bottom so that I can easily go from one to another. 

Please help , how do I restore this

Thanks.

Enable Split Mode for one of the tool windows.

HI , this doesnt seem to help . when I click run configration the run tool opens below, when I then click debug to run a debug configratuion , the run disappears and I am left only with debug.

When I right click a tool window Show Toolbar and Split window are checked. is there anything else ?

Also its strange, when I hav e run tool window ,and click the debug , the run goes down and then the debug appears on top.

In split mode you can have only 2 tool windows at the bottom at the same time.

Dont know what you mean . 

Before, all the tool windows where tabbed at the bottom so I could go run to debug to version control by clicking on the tabs below. I dont see this . I noticed also that in intellij 14 you have show as Tabs , and in 15 you do not have this option. 

All I want is to see the run , debug , and version control tabs at the bottom of the window so that I can click on each and see each

Thanks.

Sorry, it's not possible. Split view allows only 2 tools windows at the same time at the same side.

Why did you remove this feature from 14 ?

Just to clarify , I dont need to see all at once. I just need to be able to click on the tab to see. I guess the only option is Alt 4 Alt 5 etc

Click here to make the tool window buttons visible:

You can also Alt+Alt and hold Alt to make them visible while you hold it.
