Single Window Mode
« on: July 30, 2017, 10:31:19 pm »
I have Lazarus IDE of 1.6.4 version. How can I make it to be single-windowed? This horrible bunch of little separate windows puts me out of temper. I have tried to install ceratin "Anchordockdesign" (or something with the similar name) package, but nothing changed + if I maximize code editor window and try to resize it via dragging an edge of it, IDE raises a strange WinLoop exception. Any suggestions?

The easiest way would be to set the window position of all windows and then save it ...

Anchordockingdsgn only enables IDE windows to be dockable, the layout is totally up to you. There are some readily available layout here. I can send mine, too if you want. Mind you, it's my own taste which may not be everyone's taste.

Actually I noticed one thing.
I installed Anchordockingdsgn previously on latest stable Lazarus IDE 1.6.4.
And It looked like a total mess there honestly.  So I gived up and forgot about it.
Later I had one problem reported bug(My Form's size returned to default after I clickedon any component at Linux Mint).
Developers advised me to use newest release of Lazarus. I tested 1.8.0RC4. There are this problem gone.
So now I use 1.8.0RC4. And I installed Anchordockingdsgn. Here it looks quite good by default.
So I hope in next stable release of Lazarus everything will be ok.
I guess there should be option to do Lazarus Single Window(without any additional packages), like it is in Gimp for example

Do you know that there's actually more than 1 package that enables docking IDE windows? ;)
Better let it be there as a package, don't kill the modularity, but make it pre-installed instead.
