Do you know how to open a file in the atom dock (bottom or right). I’d like to use one dock as a complementary workspace to keep some auxillary documents open. I know it is possible, because I managed to do it once by accident (maybe drag and drop), but I can’t seem to reproduce it…
In a programmed way (by coding) or as a user (by human)?
Open the file
Click-drag the TAB of the new open (file) editor to a new location.
A shadow will show you where it is going to dock.
You cannot change the location of the editor if there is not already another pane open.
Experiment a little… have two editors already open in two panes, then put down a 3rd - top / bottom, left, right, centre, in another pane and so on.
the 'droids information you were looking for?
Thanks for answering, but not the right droid …
Actually, I wanted to put the file in a collapsible dock (like the one where the new Github tab is stored) not in a new pane. Unless one can also do that the way you showed? (if so, there is something wrong with my install, because I myself can’t…)
And also, you’re right: I meant as a user…
Sorry for not being able to help.
Too bad… Your second link shows that it should not be too hard to implement. Or maybe I’ll find a package that’ll do it.
Anyway, thanks for helping!
