At the moment, each interpreter only has one interactive window. We should change this so that interactive windows are independent from interpreters. Specifically:
The user can choose which interpreter and mode (IPython/not) should be used by each window
- Dropdowns are added to the toolbar to allow switching without
- These settings will appear in the window title and be preserved between sessions
The user can have multiple windows using the same interpreter
- A different process is used for each, so state is not shared.
- We should look into some sort of pickle-based $copy/$paste for moving objects between processes
The user can assign a name for interactive windows, which appear in the window title and menu
- Default names are "Python Interactive 1", "Python Interactive 2"... as for other windows in VS (Watch, Memory, etc.)
The Interactive Window options page is revised to include the interpreter setting.
A button is added to the interactive window toolbar to open directly to the options page for that window
- If we can't select the window correctly in the dialog we can reuse the options control in its own window
- The Debug Interactive Window is unaffected
The target for "Send to Interactive" is an option on each window
- Only one can be the target at a time
