So I've been trying TextMate 2 out and one of the changes is split panes. Now when I run rspec tests the output appears in a split pane at the bottom of the screen.

Has anyone figured out how to move this back to a separate window or is it just not possible? I used to move the test output to another screen but I can't figure out is that's possible in the alpha?
