[wingide-users] Tool Box tab positions

You may recall, long ago when V2 was in development, that I complained 
about vertical tabs in the Tool Box.  Wing now supports tabs on the left, 
right, top, and bottom.  But at some point the ability to set the tab 
position from the Tool Box itself seems to have gotten a bit confused.

By default, the tabs come up on the left.  and then you get a choice (when 
right clicking on a tab) to move them to the right.  If you can get them 
to appear on the top, you similarly get a choice to move them to the 
bottom.  But I don't see any way to move them from left to top (or bottom) 
or from top (or bottom) to left (or right) -- other than going into the 
project file and doing it.  Am I missing something here?

This is a bit of a pain since whenever I create a new project I have to go 
edit the project file to get the tabs in position I want them.  An easy 
fix, I'm sure.

Also, how about adding some features to the Preferences dialogs where you 
can set properties like this for the Tool Box?  There really should be a 
separate "Tool Box" section in Preferences (like there is for the Editor 
and the Debugger) where the user can set his own default Tool Box 


Also, as I mentioned in the recent C ide thread, I've been using Visual 
Studio a lot lately (C and C#).  While in some ways a bit more 
sophisticated than Wing, I find Wing's UI quite superior and much easier 
and more sensible to use.  If at some point you guys could extend Wing to 
support the whole .NET thing, that would be great.  Maybe for Version 3? I 
might even be willing to pay more for that.  :-)
