Drag out text editor pane
I am using eclipse 3.4 and was wondering if there is any way I can drag out a text editor pane from the main window. I have two monitors and do a decent amount of porting, so looking at two editors at the same time helps immensely.
Right now I have the entire window expanded over two monitors. This seems a tad bit unnecessary.

You can try out the following ways:
1. Open 2 eclipse instances mapped to different workspaces.
2. There is a plugin called "Split File Editor", chk the following link for details
Implement Split File Editor Functionality for the Eclipse IDE - Eclipsepedia
3. Go to Help of eclipse and give a search for Tiling Editors
I have used the 1st option and i am not sure of the rest two.
Anyways All the Best.To finish sooner, take your own time....

Yeah I am currently using the third option, but I will explore the other two. I just wish eclipse had built-in support for dragging editors out of the workbench. I guess it was a design choice not to have this functionality.
