Milan Zimmerman commented on SQ-221:

Tesedt the attached changeset   categoryFullyVisible-sw.4.cs.gz. The changeset ensures that the last viewer category, either when added or after it's name is modified, does not grow over the bottom, by closing preceding viewer categories.

I suggest we accept this changeset, as it fixes most issues, and does not add any problem.

There is a minor problem left, when a viewer in the middle changes it's size by changing it's type. Perhaps a new issue could be opened. The scenario is as follows:
 1) add first category viewer, select "scripts" in dropdown (or any short viewer)
 2) add second category viewer, select "scripts" in dropdown
the 2 viewers will likely fit (ensure screen size they fit)
 3) change the second viewer to "geometry" (or any long viewer). the 2 viewers will likely still fit (ensure screen size they fit)
 4) change the first viewer  to "geometry". the 2 viewers will NOT fit anymore (or ensure acreen size such that they do not)
 The second "geometry" viewer is not closed. It would be nice if the check for closing "other" viewers applied also when a viewer in the middle is manipulated, but this is very MINOR.

> Have a button that maximizes and then restores any given viewer pane so that it takes all the space of the viewer, just as if it was the only pane in the viewer.  This could really help screen real estate management.  We might also consider moving the circle button next to it, just as most people find in windows.  (Maybe even a minimize button that does the same thing as the flap icon.)
