Description Peter Zavadsky 2003-09-16 16:24:51 UTC
It is the popup menu appearing on tabs. It is
necessary to specify the action it contain, and
implement it.
(Jano when you specifies it, reassign it to me).

1. The contextual menu over the view window is following:

Maximize Window

The action performs maximization of selected window. When a window is
maximized then the menu is following:

Restore Window

The restore action is opposite to the maximize action. Note that I
changed the name from "Unmaximize" to "Restore" which seems more


2. The contextual menu over a document window is following:

Close All Documents
Close Document
Clone Document
Maximize Document

"Close All Documents" - closes the all open documents in document
area, not only in the current tabbed pane

"Close Document" - closes the current document

"Clone Document" - clones the document and puts it next (from the

hmm, i'm reopening this because there's still one missing item.

Closes other documents (all but this). 

It's really useful, and all other major IDE's have it. During work,
you often find yourself with a lot of documents open, but the one that
really matters to you is the one which you are currently editing.
"Close other documents" is a great help here, and it's proved
practically (at work I use IDEA, and I close the other documents VERY
OFTEN). Could you please reconsider this issue?

Chris please don't reopen this issue. It was specidied exactly what
should be there and what not. If you feel it is insufficient. Discuss
it  with HIE, Jano... even here, or at mailing list.
Just when you persuade him, he will add the item here, and reopen the

I'm sorry for name confusion, Leon of course, not Chris.
