    Is there a way to achieve an editor layout like this mockup? The docked panels are collapsed and the tabs compactly positioned at the sides and bottom, but can be quickly expanded for use then collapsed away again. I'm working in the 2020.2 alpha.

    I've had a little look at whether it would be possible to add this functionality myself, but I can't see an API that allows getting and setting window layout in the way required. I'm not very experienced with advanced editor window functionality, so perhaps there's a way that I haven't found.

    Inspired by how Visual Studio can compactly hide and toggle its side panels.
