Description Jiri Skrivanek 2003-10-30 10:14:16 UTC
It should be defined how to switch from joined
(aka MDI) to separated (aka SDI) mode. It used to
be in Options and Setup Wizard. Also names of
modes/states should be changed.
Comment 1 jrojcek 2003-11-10 12:40:52 UTC
Modes would be switched through the Setup wizard. We should only use a
different names for SDI/MDI modes than we used before.

I recommend:
- Compact Windows Mode
- Separate Windows Mode

Alternative names would be:
- Joined, Tabbed, ?Tiled? windows mode for MDI
- Detached windows mode for SDI

John, would you recommend something different?
