Idea 2020.1 EAP how to return previous default layout?

Answered

Since I have updated IDEA to EAP 2020.1, I noticed that
all tools bookmarks were moved to the left margin of the screen.

Previously they were logically grouped like the following:
- maven/ant/database and some others on the right margin
- build/events and some others on the bottom margin

How can I restore the previous default layout? 

I don't like that build tool pops up every time now on the left and overlaps the project overview window,
which is a must-have almost every time.
Other than that I got used to having maven and database on the right.

Did you try invoking "Window | Restore Default Layout"?

Did you try to drag tool window buttons to the prefered location? https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/manipulating-the-tool-windows.html#move

"Window | Restore Default Layout" has no effect, all tabs stay on the left, it looks like the following:

Sure, it is possible to move tools tabs manually, but it looks like this is the new default layout,
and moving them each time is very cumbersome.
All tools tabs on the left even don't fit the left margin of 27" display.

> it looks like this is the new default layout

Do you mean "Window | Restore Default Layout", or do you mean that the layout is like that after you create a new project?

Have you tried "Window | Store Current Layout as Default"?

Both. I tried to create a blank project, again all tabs on the left side

Thank you. Turns out this is a known issue: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-231055

It will be fixed no later than in version 2020.1.
