Idea Space

Only Available in Dolphin Professional

The Idea Space offers a way of grouping together various Dolphin windows to make them more manageable and to alleviate screen clutter. If you are following a particular train of thought it is often useful to be able to hold all of the Dolphin windows you are working with inside an Idea Space.

Each of the contained windows occupies its own tabbed "card" within the Idea Space. This means you can easily manipulate the windows, and close them, as a single unit.

The Idea Space is implemented by the IdeaSpaceShell class in the image.

An Idea Space can be opened from the System Folder or from the Tools/Class Browser menu command in any tool.  Once open, additional Dolphin tools that are opened while the Idea Space is active will appear as separate tabbed windows within it.
