Layout bookmarks

Nathan Gray 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 0
I often find myself switching between two kinds of layout.  I think of them this way:
  • project mode:  two 100-column groups, sidebar enabled, minimap enabled, window takes up most of the screen
  • simple mode: one 100-column group, no sidebar or minimap, window is easily placed alongside another window
Right now it's really difficult to switch a new window from one mode to another.  For example, if I've got a window in project mode and I want one in simple mode I need to do the following:
  1. View -> Side bar -> Hide Side bar
  2. View -> Hide Minimap
  3. View -> Layout -> Single
  4. Manually resize the window to about 100 colums width
Going from simple mode to project mode is similarly a chore.

I would like a way to define layout bookmarks that will switch between these layout modes with a single trip to the View menu (or keystroke shortcut) with no need to manually resize windows.  Ideally these bookmarks would capture most of the View menu's options, such as:
  • Window size
  • Pane layout state (# rows/columns)
  • Hidden/shown state for:
    • Side bar
    • Tabs
    • Status bar
    • Minimap
    • Console
  • Word wrap settings
  • Ruler settings
Thank you for considering this request!
