Can Defs pane operate on tab outside of main SE frame?
« on: August 04, 2017, 05:54:55 pm »
I keep my Defs pane docked on the left side.

Open a file
* Split horizontally
* Drag the split over to a second monitor
* Click into for focus
* Goto Defs pane, which really brings focus back to the main window due to docking
* Select a function, the window in the main SE frame moves, not the one on the second monitor.

Is there a way to use the Defs pane for buffers pulled outside the main frame?

You can dock the Defs tool window in the buffer pulled outside of the main frame.

After you pull a window out, you can dock the Defs tool window in it, then right click on the document tabs and select Layouts > Save Layout As...  and check "set as default".

Then in the future when you drag a window out, it will have the Defs window docked and ready to operate on that window.
