Moving and docking views
To change the location of a view in the current perspective:
- Drag the view by its title bar. Do not release the left
mouse button yet.
- As you move the view around the Workbench, the mouse pointer
changes to one of the drop cursors shown in the table below. The drop
cursor indicates where the view will be docked if you release the left mouse
button. To see the drop cursor change, drag the view over the left, right,
top, or bottom border of another view or editor. You may also drag the view
outside of the Workbench area to turn it into a "Detached" view.
- When the view is in the location that you want, relative to
the view or editor area underneath the drop cursor, release the left mouse
- (Optional) If you want to save your changes, select
Window > Save Perspective As...
from the main menu bar.
- Note that a group of stacked views can be dragged using the empty space to
the right of the view tabs.
You can also move a view by using the pop-up menu for the view. (Left-click
on the icon at the left end of the view's title bar, or right-click anywhere
else in the view's title bar). As well as moving the view this menu will provide
sortcut options for turning a view into either a "Fast" or "Detached" view.
