Currently tasks like the test process, output from server output in the bottom pane of the IDE. The position at the bottom of the screen suits me, but it is a shame that this pane has to take over the whole of the bottom of the IDE window. On the modern wide screen monitors, this pane is very wide and most content wastes a good third of the space. If the side panes were allowed to be full height and the bottom pane only spread across the width of the central pane, I think there would be a lot more usable space.
I think this would be better:
This would mean that for example in the left pane I could display the maximum number of items in the Project pane without it being truncated by the lower pane.
I realise I could float the bottom pane into my desired position, but then I lose content from the central pane below it. That is, the scroll bars disappear behind the bottom pane when I scroll to the bottom of a large file.
