Make Watches window resizable/expandable

HI,

currently the watches window in PyCharm can be detached from the IDE.  However, it remains the same size, and cannot be resized.  This is very inconvenient when you are monitoring variables with very long values (i.e. HTML documents, Python modules, etc.).  If this window had a resizable property it would be excellent.  Right now I have to scroll up and down, left and right to view my values, which in the course of debugging change frequently.  I don't want to have to do that.  Why not allow the watch window to be full screen?

Thanks,
Igor

Hello igor,

The window is in fact resizable, but the resize cursor is not drawn correctly

when pointing to a corner of the window because of a bug. It will be fixed

in a future update of PyCharm.
