I see... 
What I don't like is that there are still 2 *major* usability problems:
1) discoverability: *nobody* will have the idea of clicking on the upper right
corner, which makes sense only in zoom mode (to activate tied zoom) and we are
speaking here about an action that is only working in layout mode! Since we all
know close to nobody reads docs, it has to be intuitive! The first idea one
gets it to simply drag the plot as you would to move it, and put the mouse
cursor above the new tab. I think that's how it should work. It's a sort of
continuation of the natural layout mode drag event. Why should dragging within
the view be different from dragging between views?
2) unintuitive restriction: after you wrote I have to click on the upper right
corner, I tried it and thought it did not work. Why? Because I tried to drop
the plot anywhere in the new tab, that is within the view. And the even only
gets accepted if you drag the plot to the tab itself! I think it has to be
possible to drop the plot anywhere in the new view, and that even has the
benefit that it allows to pre-position it where it makes most sense.

Could you maybe update back to revision 1168869 and try it there? It was pretty
close to what I want reg. point 1)
