With a UI layout like this:

How do I close the bottom area?

These are the context menus of the header, the split, the editor type selector and the type selector itself:

There's an item that allows me to maximize the area, but there is nothing to close it.

  • $\begingroup$ @rjg Not a duplicate. The answers to that question are to use the "Join Areas" command, my question is because that command is missing from the context menu. $\endgroup$ – AndreKR Sep 18 at 18:14

Ok, I found one weird way:

I can split the bottom area vertically as well and then align the split borders of the top and bottom area pairs:

This alignment is easily possible because the split borders snap to a grid.

As soon as they are aligned, the context menu of the border between any top and bottom area gets a new item "Join areas":

After joining the left pair and the right pair, the bottom area is then gone.

  • $\begingroup$ yes I think it's a new feature, but instead of Join Areas you should be able to grab one of the window corner and push it / pull it to collapse the other window $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 18 at 13:27
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots Nope, that also only works after aligning the splits. $\endgroup$ – AndreKR Sep 18 at 18:16
  • $\begingroup$ Oh ok didn't know that $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 18 at 18:23
