show outliner / viewport / channel box / graph editor / reference editor / script editor in one big window you can add hotbox feature based on this. this just shows the concept.
i hate finding windows in linux .most of the times, outliner came behind main maya window . ahhhh. each editor rests in a pane, the size of the panes could be changed, but i don't have time to add space bar hotbox. might add fullscreen toggle switch with space bar button press in the future.
i tested it on maya 2010 x64 and , it's not working. maybe need to change somewhere. for 2008 64bit on linux , it works.
edit: now support maya 2011, but you'll see error messages most of the times, but it works, channel box sometimes is too small, just rerun the script, it'll be displayed correctly then.
