Thank you for the suggestion. Actually, this has been on my wishlist for
quite some time (https://github.com/TeXworks/texworks/issues/182).
However, the code is currently geared towards the "separate windows"
approach and requires some restructuring (mostly separating the handling
of content (i.e., text) from the display (windows, menus, toolbars,
etc.)). I have started this, but it will take some time to complete. On
the bright side, this is also the thing that stands in the way of decent
project handling...

@Joseph: Yes, I intend to make this optional.

Best regards,
