Wish Have designer window be just another tab in the IDE instead of a separate window/app

Is there a big reason I am missing why the Designer is a separate app/window and not just another tab in the IDE just like VB/Visual Studio allows mixing of code and layout tabs in the same IDE?

This way maybe the "Designer" toolbar menu would drop down and list all the layouts you have in the project and if the selected layout is already open in a tab, the IDE will jump to display that tab. Otherwise the IDE will add a new TAB and this would be the selected layout.

And this new "layout" tab could still have all the different sub-windows in it like "views tree", "properties", "script", etc.

For at least me, it would make things much more manageable instead of having multiple open separate windows.

Or the current tool windows (Logs, Files, Modules, etc) could adapt to those like how Visual Studio works.
