Tabs: Re-arrange and Close

Post by ehathgepiurhe » Mon Sep 19, 2005 12:48 pm

I think a good feature would be more control over the tabs (when multiple images open in MDI mode):
1. Be able to drag the tabs around, to re-arrange the order of the open images.
2. Close tab button (ie the little 'x') on the tabs themselves, and not just in the top right corner of the XnView window.

You have popup menu too, and you can close it with midlle button

Ah, I didn't realise you could close them with a middle click. I'm too used to the Opera browser tabs - with the little 'x' on each tab, which is quicker than right click-close on each one.

:) Hello !

- You can also close a tab by a left 2-click, even the tab of the Browser when it's displayed in "View".

- To sort the tabs "on the spot" by Drag & Drop should be nice…
¤ I guess it has been requested already during the 1.80 RCs-tests…

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

Hello Clo,

Thank you for that - some helpful advice there (the double left click is even better for closing the tabs for me). I see you on the Total Commander forums too - I will say hello the next time I am in there (I'm registered as romulous there).

Tabs re-arrangement

Post by oayz » Fri Mar 06, 2009 12:24 am

Really missing this - drag'n'drop re-arrangement of tabs. Looks like it was requested a few times (Clo syas it was a feature for 1.80). Maybe it's already implemented and I just can not figure out how to use it? :-)

Thanks!
