Title: Question about IDE options
Post by: dkettle on June 06, 2021, 12:32:28 am
Sorry if this has already been asked, but is there some option available to force the IDE to use just one window (like in Delphi) instead of multiple windows? It may seem trivial, but I just find having multiple windows disconcerting.

Thanks.

Thanks for the quick response, I'll give it a try. If I understand correctly, you have to do this for each project? Is there some way to make it the default for new projects?

I hope in some future release this package will be installed automatically, or it will just be a standard feature under "Options".

You don't have to do this for each project. After installing package, IDE will rebuild and after that it will always be docked.
