I see what you mean but I already have 2 perspectives in the application. What I am referring to is similar to the way that you can configure Eclipse RCP to save and restore the workbench layout on exit. I want the user to be able to work with the existing perspectives and arrange/resize the views the way they like and then be able to save the layout so that they can get back to it whenever they like later. Each user may have a different number of saved layouts and we would like to provide some standard ones as well. I believe this goes beyond the perspectives metaphor, is it possible?
I believe what you want to achieve cannot be done without re-implementing all the workbench "save & restore". I found a site some time ago with that implementation (can't locate it, though).
It's a hard task!
I had the same request for one app, and it's a shame the eclipse core is not implemented in a way that we can SAVE and LOAD the active perspective or / and the whole workbench state, so it can be re-arranged on-the-fly.
