[oXygen-user] Tab list when Ctrl-Tab (a la NetBeans or Safari)
Fri Jan 9 08:58:21 CST 2009
We will consider displaying a list with all the tabs on Ctrl+Tab in a
future version. A tabs list seems less distracting if one switches
between tabs by file name, not by file content or current editing location.
Thank you for your request,
