Eclipse 4 editor tab position [message #988927] Mon, 03 December 2012 14:58 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Simple question: Can I get the tabs on the BOTTOM of the editor window
with Eclipse 4, or will I be forced to re-train my brain to put up with
them at the top?

Some may think this is a trivial issue, but I assure you it's not.

Anyone who has done research into usability studies will know this.

Next step: Is there a way to get the 'up' and 'down' 'arrows' for
scrollbars next to each other (at the bottom/right)?

If the answer to all this is "download the full Eclipse source and hack
the XWT code"...

Ideally it would be controlled through CSS but I could not find it
listed at http://wiki.eclipse.org/E4/CSS/SWT_Mapping#Widget:_CTabFolder
so please file a bugzilla.

No those are toolkit specific and can be changed.
