[VS Code] Open chat in sidebar?

Is there any way to open chats in either the Primary or Secondary Side Bar in VS Code? Currently, new chats open in an editor with a split view but that’s not ideal.

Having it in a side bar instead allows,

  • easy toggling on/off when I just want to hide the chat instead of having to close it completely.
  • choice of having it open on the left or right of my main editing view.
  • keeps it grouped together with other extensions that all utilise side bars instead of the editor.

Hi @harumon, there isn’t but this feedback will be seen by our product team. Thanks for the reasons/details.
