VA Smalltalk Goodie: Workspace Browser

Abstract

The workspace browser allows you to view multiple workspaces in a single window.

Description

Have you ever found you windows task bar completely filled with windows titled "Workspace"? Have you ever lost a gem of a doit by closing a workspace accidentally? If so, then the workspace browser is for you.

The workspace browser allows you to view multiple workspaces in a single window. The browser is split into two panels. The larger panel,
on the right hand side, represents a normal workspace with all of the normal editing capabilities. The left hand side of the browser contains
a list of workspace members that the browser is managing.

You can scroll through the workspaces using the F7/F8 keys. Pressing Ctrl-T will allow you to change the name of a workspace as it appears in the list. Ctrl-K kills the current workspace. From the file menu, select "Bring in" to bring contents of already existing workspaces into the browser. The "Tear off" menu options will open a new independent workspace with the contents of the currently selected workspace member and then remove the currently selected workspace member from the browser.
