Description maxnitribitt 2009-09-10 14:01:18 UTC
The Options -> Editor -> Code Templates Window would benefit from a SplitPane. Currently (on Ubuntu) I see a small area
on top reserved for a table and a large JTabbedPane (Expanded Text / Description) that takes most of the screen real
estate for displaying typically 1-3 line of text. 

Expected layout:
The table should make use of screen real estate by default and grow when resizeing. A splitpane could be used to make
the two parts resizeable.

Proposed patch

I like to propose a patch to solve the issue. The patch adds a vertical JSplitPane to the panel. Nothing more. No logic has been changed. The patch looks big, but I only moved the widgets within the GUI builder.

@Dusan: Please review and commit, if appropriate. 
BTW: In general do you (and the other devs) still accept patches of usability issues for 7.4?
