Pin Object Data loses tabs
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

Broken: 6fd11a21f5c5

When pinning any menu in the properties editor it keeps all related tabs. For some reason the Object Data menu is an exception to that. Maybe there are even more?
When pinned, the Vertex Groups, Shape Keys & Face Maps tabs disappear. I see this as a bug but maybe there is some intention behind this. It's very odd to me though since pinning has the purpose of keeping certain settings visible & editable. If half of them disappear anyway, what's the point of pinning?

The reason is that vertex groups and shape keys are actually part of the Object to some extent, not the object data. So with just a Mesh pinned these can't be edited.

The data design should arguably be changed here, but this is outside the scope of the bug tracker and will break backwards compatibility if we do it.
