Request: Context menu on "split view" mode tabs

Recommended Posts

I think it’s worth noting that those tabs currently don’t respond to mouse actions; they’re just ‘visual overlays’ onto the document content without any other purpose.

With that in mind, if the tabs were to be made into user-actionable things, might it not be easier to click on them to get the menu rather than right-click?

Or, alternatively, would clicking on them be a nice quick way to swap them round, with a right-click to get the menu as suggested?

Just thought I’d pop those suggestions into the mix and see what happened.

Moved my "duplicate" suggestion here after Garry made me aware of this posting;

With focus on usability I have some suggestions for intuitive improvements to the split view feature.

Once it's initiated, a quick way of swapping the view settings could be by showing the "View Mode" sub-menu if one of the view tabs is right clicked.

Even better would be if the options could be presented by hovering the tab and offer the complete set of options from the menu, in the same style as the split/tab elements. Ref. "screenshot". Alternatively the extra elements could pop up when the tab is (right)clicked.

The "extra" tab on the interface could also offer a visual way of closing / going back to "Single View" by displaying a close button.
