Pull Tabs Off Into A New Window Or An Existing Window



  • Unable to pull/drag tabs off into their own windows, or into existing windows.



  • @hot_denim - It's easy here. What happens when you drag a tab?

    I think this used to be impossible (or didn't work) in 1.5, but in 1.6 it works, for me on Linux at least.

    EDIT: Pulling tabs to form new windows still doesn't seem to work like in Firefox, for example.



  • @Ayespy I tried it again, sometimes it works (somtimes it does not, and sometimes Vivaldi closes all windows). When it does work it can take approx 2 seconds for the new window to appear. But also importantly. there is no visual feed back at all in any of the steps of pulling a tab off into a new windows (for example try it on google chrome and see the visual feedback).

    Also putting a tab from one windows into another window is almost impossible (but can be done), works if you overlap it on to a tab, but then you get a tab group. Also there is no visual feedback (for example try it on google chrome and see the visual feedback).

    You're using Windows, right? Interesting that you can pull tabs into new windows but not to existing windows (properly), and it's vice-versa for me on KDE. I also get proper visual feedback while you don't...



  • @kumiponi - Works as expected, complete with visual feedback, here on Win10.

    On Linux (MATE Desktop) It can be done more fluidly, but sometimes The Desktop thinks that you are copying a file to the Desktop Area (when you release mouse button after the 'drag off'), it shows a file copy progress dialog window. There is some feedback, the tab's 'title section' is dragged.



  • Okay so this is a Linux issue (not sure about Mac). Window handling on Linux is dependent on the window manager or display server you are using. Their support of standards naturally varies, but if Chrome does the tab dragging effortlessly, others should be able to do it too.
