[haiku-development] Re: [RFC] Getting rid of the tabs in Terminal, using Stack Tile instead (Adrien Destugues)

make sense. However, on Haiku that space isn't wasted, because it allows stacking windows -- windows with tab views. As I wrote before, I find that that an awesome feature to neatly organize multiple browser windows on a single workspace. Losing that functionality would be... uh... a loss. Agreed. I may be in a minority, but personally I'd rather have ST be a feature that's strictly for the user's organizational purposes, and not co-opted by apps (or at least not without it being an explicit option). ...

[haiku-development] Re: Fixed width for the DataTranslations preflet (Axel Dörfler)

Am 26.07.2015 um 20:09 schrieb Markus Himmel: Obvious ways of approaching this are: 1. Don't change anything and have the width change for each translator. 2. Make the preflet larger when necessary, but never smaller. 3. At startup, run through all translators to find the widest and use that for the preflet. If that turns out to be too small, fall back to option 2. ...

I often trigger this by accident when trying to copy text from one tab to another. This involves clicking on a tab, then middle clicking on the ...

[haiku-development] Fixed width for the DataTranslations preflet (Markus Himmel)

Wed, 2015-08-26 19:45
Regarding Ticket 12243 ( I aren't exactly sure how to best realize this idea. The problem is that the relevant part of the TranslatorRoster interface ( .h#n80) does not guarantee that, when the configuration view is requested multiple times, the width is always the same. This means that it is not possible to determine ...
