Quick toggle full screen panes

Feature request: With a quick keyboard shortcut, toggle to a view where the current in-focus pane takes up the whole RStudio window.

When working on a small-sized laptop screen, the 4-pane view of RStudio can be somewhat cluttered. There's no way that the text editor, console, or help browser can all be sufficiently large enough. I'd like to be able to "zoom to" the panel that is in focus with a keyboard shortcut, so that the panel takes up the whole RStudio window, and return to the multi-panel view with the same shortcut.

A start would be to add a shortcut for toggling a pane between maximized vertical and regular size, which you can now do with buttons.

I agree. And maybe also make the panes undockable so one can switch windows for example.

Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback and we do have a few requests for this. I'll chalk up another on on our feature request list.
