Platform UI/Multi-instance Properties View
Ideas/Use cases/Requirements for multi-instance Properties View (PV):
- Pin PV to current selection (stop following selection) - Inherit parents settings (For PV org.eclipse.ui.part.WorkbenchPart.getPartProperties() might be an option) - Inherit parents input (requires API to get the Input from the parent) - New one has focus?
- Open the new view either on the same stack or else where? (If the user wants to compare two objects, a stacked view doesn't fit) - Back and forward buttons to navigate between the property view instances - Multiple PV instances are still restorable? - Open the properties view from the context menu of the current selection (show in) (Object id might be used for secondary view id).
