Follow-up Comment #22, bug #53046 (project octave):

I tried it - nice!

Something that worked previously but doesn't work here (yet?) is opening
nested arrays in a new tab.

a = num2cell (rand (3));
a{2, 3} = rand (2);
openvar ('a')

... and then double-click cell a(3, 2) => nothing happens.

A really good enhancement would be to be able to have multiple floating
(undocked) variable editor panes. 
That does work (somewhat) but quite fragile. When I pull a second  variable's
'tab"/pane from the (undocked) variable editor to the desktop it looses focus
after a second (I have "Focus follows mouse' set) and disappears completely,
even parts that weren't covered by windows that overlap it partly (see
pictures bug53046_Vared_1_PRN.png (focus on VE) and bug53046_Vared_2_PRN.png
(focus elsewhere)). 
Clicking on the taskbar Variable Editor icon makes the child tab appear for a
while; in fact the parent VarEd window and all its child windows get focus and
moves to the foreground. Once that VE window loses focus all its children
again disappear from sight.
