Putting the history log on top of the script editor

Commenter mindFreeArtists asks

Is there is a possibility to swap script editor window and history log window so that i have history log at the top of script editor like in previous versions?

Sure, but you can’t do it all through the UI. The Script History view is not listed by the relational view editor, so you have to create a view and then hand edit the .xsivw file. Here’s the .xsivw that goes with the screenshot in this post. Note the <frame name="log" type="Script History" part: that’s what adds the script history log.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsi_file type="RelationalView" xsi_version="" syntax_version="1.1">
	<relationalview clsid="{E968166E-F924-46F4-AD4D-452EEB963F84}" name="My View" height="521" width="479">
		<definition maxinstances="10000" acceptfocus="true" private="false" defaultsize="100,100,500,500" cmdmap="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}" supportedtypes="6" category=""> </definition>
		<frameset orientation="vertical" name="Frameset1" buttonsize="80,30" splitter="movable" sizechild="200,*">
			<frame name="log" type="Script History" primary="true" toolbar="own"> </frame>
			<frame name="pane2" type="Text Editor" primary="false" toolbar="own"> </frame>
