Split Window Functionality



I like the new split-window functionality in Irida, it's a huge improvement
over the previous approach. However a couple of things I have noticed:

- Why were CTRL-2 and CTRL-3 chosen as the default keybindings for splitting
vertically and horizontally? They clash with the bookmark functionality. I
can still set bookmarks with CTRL-SHIFT-2 and CTRL-SHIFT-3, I just can't get
to them with CTRL-2 and CTRL-3 anymore! A similiar problem exists for
CTRL-1.

- I would like to see a way to 'unsplit' a single split window. I've noticed
that CTRL-1 is close to what I'm after, however it removes all split windows
rather than just the current split level. As an example, suppose I have the
following:
______

1

2

___

3

__

___


Currently, when I press CTRL-1 I end up with the following, regardless of
which editor pane I'm in:
______

1

______


What I'd like to see is that if I was in panel #3 for example, CTRL-1 would
give me the following instead:
______

1

3

__

___


Make sense?

Try CTRL-0, that's exactly what you are asking for.

and for the first part:
You're absolutely right. Hiding the bookmark functionality with clashing
default keybindings was a very bad idea.

Thank you, I hadn't discovered that one :)

stfdaown.

Isn't it possible to re-assign the split/unsplit keyboard shortcuts to something similar to CtrlF4? CtrlShiftF4 and CtrlAlt+F4 perhaps?
