Description markuszeller 2012-07-09 07:16:36 UTC
Double clicking a tab on editor or any other view like "search results" or "output" will cause it making fullscreen within the IDE.

I love this feature, because double clicking again, brings the old position back.

Here is my request:

Some views have subviews, like "search results". They are organized as well as some kind of tabs. It would be nice, to be able to double click on them, having their parent tab zoomed.
