           Summary: IDEAl mode full-sized tool view tabs not practical on
                    smaller screens
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel kdevelop org
        ReportedBy: bernd.pol online de

Version:           3.0.90-CVS (using KDE 3.2.90 (CVS >= 20040117), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.1 (SuSE Linux)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.21-99-athlon

It is good to see that full text tool view tabs are back in IDEAl mode. But in the current layout they are far too big for a 1024 x 728 screen. I can make them all visible only if I select a ridiculously fine 8 point Luxi Sans font. And even then not all are fully shown in the left side tab bars, even in full screen mode. (And we have still to account for old-fashioned 800x600 screens around the world!)
We must make this configurable. At least the user should be able to select between full text and icon only modes.
Additionally desirable would be a means to move them around (like the document tabs in konqueror) to unhide or fold them into multiple rows, which however would use up valuable works space on small screens.
Also the text fonts may be made configurable for the tool view tabs.
