IntelliJ IDEA makes it possible to detach editor tabs, and move them to separate frames.

To detach an editor tab, do one of the following

  • Drag this tab outside of the main window. A preview thumbnail appears:

  • Press Shift+F4.
    /help/img/idea/2017.3/detach_editor_tab1.png

The content of the editor tab opens in a separate frame.
