[request] - PLE detach window

Postby arnie » 16 May 2009

Hi.

What about giving PLE the possibility of window detachment?

When working on a second version of the same formula, it would be very useful to have both formulas displayed in detached windows, side by side, so we could compare both and knowing exactly what and where we are.

OK, we can have two windows inside PLE, but as you know, the size of each is sometimes a bit tight when working with big formulas.

Having detach windows we could increase productivity since we would have a larger workable area.

For the "pros" in EL maybe this is something that they really can live without, but for the "newbies", like myself, where we are constantly comparing formulas and studying them, this is a "must have" feature.

Regards.
Fernando

it would be even better if I could get the Output window detached as well.

PLE windows can be detached in the current version.


However they are invisibly connected.
e.g. if I minimize the PLE, the detached Output window will also be minimized.
It would be nice if the output window is not tied to PLE.

I'm not talking about the output nor the navigator window. Yes, we can detach both of them from PLE into other monitors.

I'm talking about the formula window. I'd like to detach this window so I could compare two formulas/studies in two monitors, giving me more screen area to see the formula.
