Yeah, it's in that version with me at least. Take a look at the demo, it's easy to miss.

cheers, J.

Wow, very cool. How do you get the large icons? I don't have those on startup either.

I tried just as you show in the video to full screen the window, but my EKOS still opens independently instead of a tab. I wonder if there is some Mac OS setting, or some other option that enforces this tabbed view.

Doesn't work in my Linux version, either. Neither with 'independent window' selected for EKOS, nor without....

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.
