Hi Matthew,

Wow you've been busy, well done.  Seems to work for me.

Does this mean that editing now fully works between the two split windows?

> Closes bug #2983145[2] although the keybindings and main menu items still

Except for these of course.

> #0003
> Remove the widget reparenting in an attempt to make the plugin work on

> Closes bug #3203384[5] and feature request #2796316[6]

Agree, originally the menu matched the underlying GPane but GPane
describes the *children* being *arranged* horizontal or vertical,
whereas the menu was describing the *parent* window being *split*
horizontally or vertically, the opposite thing.

Can't reproduce on 0.20 Release version either.
