user was able to resolve the issue with the old version of octave. Closing report. if this resurfaces with current versions it can be reopened or a new on more specific to the new problem can be opened.

> [...] it might be helpful to reset the window layout (last entry in menu "Window") and try again to arrange the widgets into the desired layout.


Performing "reset the window layout" multiple times (3-5) fixed the issue.

Were the hints in comment #3 and comment #4 helpful for configuring the desired layout?

I found that it is often the precise cursor position (while dragging panes) that is vital for how the GUI will respond to relocating panes.

It might be "tricky" to arrange certain widget layouts. This is something that is not managed by the gui but by the underlying Qt framework (however, some of the gui's configuration might affect the way widget can be arranged).

Anyhow: Your desired layout is possible. Since the possibilities of arranging widgets seem to depend on the layout history it might be helpful to reset the window layout (last entry in menu "Window") and try again to arrange the widgets into the desired layout.

should actually be:

{1,2}          : Editor{1,2}

The GUI is allowing me to have a matrix of windows,

{1,1}, {1,2}

Within {1,1}, I am able to vertically stack windows:

{1,1}{1,1}
{1,1}{2,1}
{1,1}{3,1}

However, I am unable to arrange windows horizontally, and I was able to do this in 6.1.0 (they still stack into tabs fine):

{1,1}{1,1}{1,1}: 2 tabs: Current directory, variable editor
{1,1}{1,1}{2,1}: Workspace
{1,1}{2,1}     : 2 tabs: Command window, command history
{1,1}{3,1}     : Editor
