So we are all aware of the traditional GM style editors:
We are all very comfortable with this to some degree, you save in the top left etc etc. But there's a problem here.
The tool bar buttons are never aligned with the content being edited. I propose that for LateralGM we move all the side panels on the room editor, path editor, sprite editor, and background editor to the right instead of the left.
With this change all of the toolbar buttons are properly aligned with the content area and requires less mouse dragging to click. What does everyone think about doing this? Since I realized this I've really come to like the idea. An alternative would be to move the toolbar in the content area (but this is gross if we keep it the edit panel on the left because I'm used to save being in the top left of the window). The other alternative is to simple right align the toolbar (though this also moves the save button to where you wouldn't expect it to be). Please let me know what you all think if I don't get enough feedback I may just end up doing this anyway.
The alternative looks like the following. To eliminate the whitespace we could put the save button in the bottom left like it is on the font editor and object editor then move the toolbar into the content area. I don't like this though because I am really used to the save button being in the top left.
As a preference it could also move the tree. The IDE would be either left or right oriented.
