Double-Click to Maximize Debugger Output

When debugging using a WebServer you can get quite a few lines of output and the default height of the console is too small to scroll effectively.
I know that I can drag it to resize it, but it would be nicer if I could double click it and it would maximize - in the same way that the editors maximize.
Double clicking again would then resize back down to the original size.

As a workaround, what you can do is toggle the window in and out of floating mode. The window retains different size settings for floating and fixed modes. So set the floating size to a large window and position it over the editor. Then toggle to floating when you want it bigger. To make it easier, map a key to the floating mode action in key mappings: All Actions | Main Menu |Window Floating Mode You'll need to give focus to the tool window (Alt+5) before you can use the action via the keyboard.

I know its not ideal, but it is a acceptable workaround until the desired feature is added.
