Can't get bottom bar to dock to bottom right

I want the Project tab which shows the file system to extend to the bottom of the window, while the bottom window does not obscure it, so that if I expand the Project window, the bottom window shrinks to the right with it.

So I want it docked to the bottom, but not overlaying the Project window, just the code file window.

I can do this in Eclipse, but not PHPStorm.

Hi there,

Could you please illustrate it with screenshot? It's not clear (for me, at least) what exactly is required (I've got the general idea but would like to clarify it).

Each section in PHPStorm is called a "window" according to their own settings and documentation.

In Eclipse, you can manipulate sections to be snapped where you want, and their edges to be snapped to other edges where you want; in PHPStorm, the bottom section ("window") extends the entire left and right of the editor, and the left side can't be snapped to the right side of the file structure section.

Here's some pictures I drew for you describing the situation.

PhpStorm does not have such precise control, unfortunately (independant settings for left/righ sides).

But it's still possible to achieve what you want: Settings | Appearance & Behaviour | Appearance --> Widescreen tool window layout.
