Great suggestion. Window and pop-up management is one of the quiet frustrations of the platform, the number of times I couldn’t work out why a window wasn’t closing only to find a Dialog obscured by a window that was ostensibly in the background...

I agree.
Added the ability to switch between the KStars planetarium screen and Ekos with tabs. It would be much easier to use if it could be displayed in the capture window and the module operated by Livevideo.

So, this is a good discussion. I like the mockups! There seems to be enough demand to include this in an upcoming release. Is there someone on the dev team that might what to comment? Is this on the radar, and what might be a rough timeframe? Having Ekos and Kstars like what can be on Mac/Linux would be the first priority, but there are lots of other windows that need to be considered... Indi Control Panel, Fits viewer.

I would rank this as my number 1 issue with using the application(s) along with general stability concerns.

Thanks!

Where and how? On mine (downloaded a few days ago from stable) no option to show or use any tab bar.

Also, on Mac I can show the tab bar but can't get e.g. Ekos window to open as a tab (even when Kstars is full screen and checked Preferences "Independent Window" seems to make no difference to this).

Excellent idea though.

In my opinion the first step would be to integrate the fitsviewer as tab in Ekos.

ALL popups? Including the ones that ask if your camera has a shutter or if you have covered your telescopes when you’re about to take darks?

No, not all pop ups. Only the applications that you would switch back and forth. A notification like covering the scope should be left as is. You typically just see those and close them. There would be no need to keep them active in a tab.

All of the independent windows (including the fits viewer) appear as tabs in full screen mode on the Mac version. Not sure why it's not working for some. I'm running Kstars 3.4.3 on Catalina 10.15.6.

Because I have two screens I prefer the concept of multiple windows.
There is only one annoyance: EKOS is minimized together with KStars' skymap window. In don't like this behaviour. EKOS should stay open if I try to minimize the skymap window.

Just my 0,02 €.

You can configure Ekos to be an independent Window and it won't behave that way. Settings --> Configure KStars --> Ekos
