Are floating editor windows available in SE18?
« on: May 03, 2013, 01:50:57 am »
Hi:

A quote from this article (http://sdt.bz/36781) states:

"
Etter said customers have been asking to float editor windows outside the main IDE window. “Folks have said, ‘Geez, I want to be able to drag this particular window over here on a second monitor and have it maximized.’ But the application wasn’t architected for that. It’s always been a single-window application,” he said, noting that that specific change “is front and center in our 2013 release plan.”
"

I can't figure out how to do this in the SE18 beta.  i tried dragging the tabs outside the main SE window, but that doesn't work.

Was this feature developed? I was looking forward to it!

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks for the reply Rodney.  I will gladly wait for you guys to get it right.

Is this targeted for the final SE18/2013 release, or will it be in a future release?

This is a requirement for v18.0.0. While we can wait on other features, this one must be completed. This will be in a beta before the release.
