Description nullbarriere 2013-06-06 08:14:13 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.3 (Build 201302132200)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 21.0-b17

The Context Menu of Tab Buttons already has Menuitems "Close", "Close All" and "Close Other". By long-term use of PSPad I'm used to find "<== Close Left" and "Close Right ==>" there. Pretty much does what it says, closes the Tabs left resp. right of the Tab clicked. "<== Close Left" as Example is very handy when starting to work on a different Task, after having opened the first File of the new Task. Maybe have a Config Checkbox for that in case some think this being superfluoussy.
