[Bug] Console Pane Gets Stuck After Move in IDE Interface

Hello! Just a quick bug report for those who may be interested/involved in development of the Arduino IDE 2.0

There seems to be a problem with moving the console pane to the right side of the screen in certain areas. It appears like there are spaces for panes where they should not be able to go, and proceed to get stuck there.

My console pane will move to one of the right sectors and will remain now stuck there. Clicking and dragging the tab/pane name cannot "unpin" it from that part of the interface (see screen recording), and no other pane can be added to the console that is now stuck to the right.

Thank you very much! I hope this helped!

My output windows could be moved away from the right side, but now it is stuck between the left side-bar and the sketch.

Thanks for your very clear report!

It's not actually stuck. It's just that the way sidebar elements are moved is inconsistent with how it works for elements in other locations in the UI. You have to grab the sidebar icon rather than the pane title:

I see that VS Code allows you to grab either, which I think is much more intuitive. I suspect this behavior is coming directly from the Eclipse Theia IDE framework Arduino IDE 2.x is based on and probably would need to be changed in that code base rather than in the Arduino IDE code base.
