I rather prefer to have one editor window open per file. Neither
Eclipse nor IDEA supports this, and I like the other features of IDEA
enough to put up with the "one big window" behavior. Obviously, others
especially those used to Visual Studio, like the one window behavior, so
it would have to be a switchable preference.
Is there any hope of getting this as an optional behavior in IDEA? It
is worth a lot more to me than many other things on the list.
If this is too much, there is one Eclipse feature that might be worth
"learning from". Double click in the title tab of an editor, and the
editor window takes up the whole Eclipse window, giving a lot more
editing space at the touch of a key. In IDEA currently, you can close
the project, run, and other tabs, but you still have the pile of tab
headers along the top showing the name of each open window, which can
take a LOT of room if you have long class names.
Is there any hope of getting at least the second feature, if not the
