[PowerLanguage Editor] Drag 'n drop tabs in the MDI bar

icon_info.png This issue has been closed with status "Declined" and resolution "Not determined".

Currently, the tabs of the open files in the PowerLanguage Editor are fixed in place and can't be rearranged by the user. This is, in terms of usability, is quite user unfriendly if the user has multiple PowerLanguage files open at the same time. The only workaround now is to close the open PowerLanguage files and reopen them one-by-one in the order the user would like.

So, I'd like to request a drag 'n drop feature that enables the user to reorder the tabs with the mouse, so that the files he's currently working on can be easily displayed next to each other.

That's a good idea.
Also, and I remember requesting this a couple of years ago, maybe during version 5 or 6, the ability to detach each opened study. The same way we can detach from PLE the Navigator panel, I'd like to have the possibility to detach the studies panels. If analizing a couple of studies, we could dispose each panel in a different monitor, giving us more visible lines of code, without the need of scrooling it.

This functionality is not planned for the future.
