Open/Close Tool Container in the same static place

Having the open / close ( expand / collapse ) button for the tool container in lhe top right corner implies that everytime a big container is expanded, to close it the user has to move the pointer to its new position, which sometimes mean scrolling / zooming out and then zooming in to locate it.

I suggest to locate that button in the top left corner by the side of the enable/disable switch or even a double click mechanism for open/close, which would enable to user to open, see what is inside the container, and close it without moving the mouse to locate the new location of the button.

Being able to double click anywhere on the tool container to get it to expand / collapse would be cool.

I like the idea of double clicking! Although this is used now to edit the title of the container. Another option would be to just add this in the configuration window just below the "disabled" setting checkbox. This way, the user simply has to click on the tool container to bring up the configuration and change this setting from there. This is even more useful now that containers can remain open even when disabled in workflows.
