Follow-up Comment #1, bug #53046 (project octave):

I've looked into this a bit.  For reference, I think the way to achieve
multiple V.E. tables visible at once is to use Qt's QMdiArea:


MDI stands for multiple document interface which is a common term:


I believe the idea is that multiple documents can be visible at once.

Qt's MDI area can be in "tiled" mode


which I'm guessing is similar to the way the Octave GUI main window works in
which subwindows expand to butt up against other subwindows but never overlap.
 I think this is what would be preferred for the V.E.

The nice thing is that QMdiArea has an option tab feature:


For some reason Qt documentation doesn't give a good picture of that tab area,
but just think of the pictures given here:


as having a series of tables along the top.
