New UI tool windows feedback


I love the new UI - it's much easier on the eyes.

However, I cannot dock tools to top left or top right like the old UI. This makes for a TERRIBLE experience when using monitors in portrait mode. Tool windows on the sides take way too much horizontal space. I'd like the editor in the middle, and all my tools on the top or bottom.

See screenshots below for examples.

Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, the horizontal tool window placement on top has been disabled in the new UI. We have a request to bring it back, please upvote IDEA-308284 and follow it for updates, see this article if you are not familiar with YouTrack.
