Description Petr Dvorak 2008-05-06 10:10:10 UTC
I had a request for this feature from a NB user:

"...having multiple split-views of one large file would be nice to have..."

I know that I can now clone the document, undock the tab and dock it to the bottom of the document area so that I have
two splits of the same file. However, it would be nice to allow splitting the editor tab, so that the split is
associated only with a single tab.

Ideal situation:
1. You have 2 files opened: and
2. You invoke "Split" from the popup menu of the tab for
-> you have the exactly the same appearance of the editor as you would have after "clone-undock-dock" sequence of

3. You switch to tab
-> you have only one view, there is no split
