Description

In-Kepler Actor documentation can be pretty frustrating to read due to GUI layout. Generally, for an actor that's been documented, the bulk of the doc information is the explanation of the actor, yet this section of the window isn't given much more space than the others. You cannot adjust individual pane/area sizes, and when you resize the entire actor doc window vertically, all the new space is given to the title pane/area, which is pointless.

Christopher, how easy is it to change the layout of the actor documentation window? It would be nice at least if the areas were resizable.

In Ptolemy, the class that implements the actor documentation window is ptolemy/vergil/actor/DocViewer.java

I can take a look at making the draggable, or at least making it so that the titlePane is not the one that grows.

I updated DocViewer with two scroll panes and made the title a fixed size so that it will not grow when resized.

I'm redispatching this to Dan for possible closure.
