I have attached a patch (currently based on the stable branch, without any comments, just for testing) that adds a "hide/show filter" entry to the context menu of the workspace view. If the patch provides the desired/expected behavior I would add it to the history view, too.

Should this go into the stable or dev branch?

(file #34514)

Indeed column sorting was broken by cset http://hg.octave.org/octave/rev/9a8be23d2c05. Reintroducing the dropped line + comment line fixes the sorting option.

I'll open a separate bug report for the column sorting incl. a new patch (bug #45448)

yep that was bug #44217.
I think that cset you mentioned indeed did something unintended, while it was meant to extend the original patch.
Easy enough to try what happens if I put the original lines back in (but not later this week)

(I see that there's follow-up for me 8-0 - I wasn't in the cc list of that (closed) bug so I didn't catch it.)

I think the initial sort patch mentioned by Philip is #44217

C'set http://hg.octave.org/octave/rev/9a8be23d2c05 removed the clickable table header, perhaps this wasn't intended?

The OP just wants the filter to be hidden, not the entire workspace pane.

I agree with the OP; also for the command history pane. But I wouldn't have a good suggestion how to hide it - with a dedicated button?

As to the sorting, there's been a patch for that a while ago (can't find it right now), I had it applied to my private MXE builds. IIRC a was a tiny one-liner patch.
It may even have been integrated into core, but if so it doesn't work.

The colors - agreed, the tooltip should only show on entries in the workspace pane.

For the work space just click the X and it is gone.

Hi - just wondering - can you make the workspace filter optional? It's taking up prime space on the GUI. Also, it doesn't seem possible to sort the columns (by Name Value Class Bytes). This would be useful! Last thing, there is a tooltip popup whenever you hover the mouse over any empty section of the workspace. I support gay marriage as much as the SCOTUS but... don't need to see the rainbow flag every 15 seconds ;)
