android ddms customization tabs for logcat view and devices view

so i pulled out the logcat view and devices view by mistake and the only way to see them now is by separate tab. how can i make them side by side in the andriod ddms tab.

Hey Adham I had the same issue using Android Studio, the best way I found to get around is to understand that the bottom left square icon interacts differently, on click it toggles the panel visibility and on hover it displays the many different views for your project (Graddle, structure, project etc...). On my case I failed to note that after selecting the ddms tab I needed to expand the tab upwards to actually visualize the contents I was seeking.

Now your case relates to manipulating tabs and that can be accomplished by fiddling with the (active tab) top right corner gear icon (with a drop-down arrow), there you can select between split mode or pin mode.

Hope it helps!
