  • I am faced with two decisions for 3.4.0 (which is getting there):

    1.  Bookmarks Menu.  In 3.4.0, bookmarks are intergated into the file dialog for both open and save.  Should I keep the bookmarks menu on the main window?  Should I make it availible as a plugin?

    2.  Tabs Menu.  Should the Tabs menu be moved to the menubar (Top Row), or be a submenu from file?  Also, should I include a list of all open tabs, or leave this to Franz's TabList Plugin?

    What Thoughts?

      I would like to see the tabs menu in the top row.
      Also including at the bottom of the menu a  list of all open tabs, as it is in most editors.
      for example: list the first 10 tabs and after the last tab  "more tabs ..." or so.

       
    • Sounds good to me.
      (Right before the help menu?).

      Only, just how many tabs do you plan of having open?
      What about just listing all of the tabs?

       
    • yes, before the help menu; that would be a good place.

      Sometimes a few, most of the times 15 or 20.
      That is the explanation of my wish of an ability of hiding tabs ;)

      Sure, all tabs listed would also suffice.

      (I thought only, if the place of the drop down menu list
      isn't efficient).

       
    • my vote also goes to tabs menu in top row (right or left of Options seems OK)

       
    • I renamed it Documents menu.
      It was very silly of me (and confusing) to have named it tabs in the first place.

      I added the documents directly to the menu.
      However if there are more than 10, it sorts them
      (1-10, 11-20, etc).

      I also put the navigational stuff in its own sub menu.

      I am updating cvs as I post.

      This could change:
      I might put the nav menu into the main menu,
      I might list the first 10 no matter what, and only sort those over 11.

      What thoughts?
