docked tagged search results and/or build results window

While using Zeus, I end up creating a fair number of windows which are search results or build output that are then used for navigation. I find myself always moving these windows around. How about an option to create a docked tagged pane across the bottom of the screen. Then as windows are created which I want to keep for a while, I can drag and drop them in this docked pane. The pane would maintain tabs to select which one I want to use.

Hi Jack,

These type of standard IDE windows features are planned for Zeus.

Zeus pre-dates this standard IDE look and instead uses the much older Windows MDI model. This unfortunately means it is not a simple a task to move the windows around :(

These features will eventually get added, but the change does require quite a bit of planning, redesign and testing to ensure that not too many problems are introduced :(

In the mean time the View Document List menu, which maps to the FileListDisplayEx function does help a bit with navigation.

This dialog also has a sort button that I find also helps a lot :)

Cheers Jussi

The new Zeus for Windows Version 3.94 release is still an MDI application and as such still has no support for dockable search and tool windows :(

But this release does fix the bug with Attempt to resuse search output window option found in the Edit, Find in Files menu so it might help to reduce the number of search windows created :)

Cheers Jussi
