Default Splitting docked views vertically as well

This would make even better use of my screen realestate.

The request
Vertical splits of docked views, the same way horizontal splits are possible via CTRL+drag of a docked view.
An example to illustrate how useful this may be.

The following Licecap shows the two views I'd like to combine by vertically splitting.

It shows
  1. The undo view
  2. A toolbar
  3. The way I have it setup right now with lots of separators in the toolbar to push the icons down to accomodate placing the undo view on top of it.

I want to have the undo view above the toolbar without having a window with useless 'window dressing' around it for the same reason everyone is docking their stuff. Less wasted space and visual clutter.



If anyone is wondering, I'm calling a screenset for the third and final state.

Just thought I'd add a simple overview graphics of what this request is asking for. It seems to be a little too complex seeing that nobody is posting any reaction for it.


Reaper as of v6.43




Requested are being able to vertically split things:

Why not have the ability to select horizontal or vertically splitting for each dock.

why not having the abillity to dock it wherever you want and as much as splits as you want like in graphic apps?

We can already split horizontally. Hold CTRL while dragging a docked view.

we can also split vertically but only in the left and right sides.

same for horizontally split, we can only split horizantally at the tom and the bottom, but I actually want to split horizontally on the left because my screen big enough and I want to "double parking" horizontally on the left...

Yeah, I have the problem that the left docker is already taken up by the mixer, and the top docker cannot be split vertically. That's where some toolbars live.

I'd LOOOOVE to put bigclock there and even the entire transport bar and the Undo view and another toolbar.

Seems like a shame to limit the flexibility of the dockers.
