e20 does handle Eclipse GUI reconfiguration
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Eclipse allows moving GUI elements to separate windows. For instance, I can drag an editor tab out of the main window. In order to add more tabs to that separate editor window I can then again drag tabs from the main to the new window.

This does not work well with e20:

  1. A new window created by dragging an editor tab out of the main window does not allow maximizing or minimizing, I can however resize it.
  2. In one case I was unable to dock a second editor tab to such an extracted window. In the end there was one unresponsive window left that remained on the workspace even after quitting Eclipse (restarting e20 removed it).
