Direction of Tabs locally defined


Is it possible to have different tab directions for different parts of the docking manager ? 

At the moment I only see a global setting. This leads to very complicated nested structures.

Am I missing something ?

Are you referring to the placement of DocumentTab or TabbedWindow? Please refer to the below image and confirm.

A tabbed window.

Example: ViewModel1 - Docked Right - Name VM1

             ViewModel2 - Tabbed - Name VM2 Target VM1

             ViewModel3 - Docked Bottom - Name VM3 Target VM1

             ViewModel4 - Tabbed - Name VM4 Target VM3

VM1 and VM2 should be vertical

VM3 and VM4 should be horizontal

Is that clearer ?
