Description aschwarz1309 2012-06-25 23:08:42 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.1.2 (Build 201204101705)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_03
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 22.1-b02

It would be nice, but not critical, if there were an option to allow sorting of the code tabs (by name). I am coding in C++ an seems to have generated a g'zillion files. During an editing session I will typically look at more source files than there are tabs on top. This is irritating for header (.h) and source (.cpp) files which are not both visible as tabs at the same time. The enhancement is (certainly) not critical because there are a number of ways to access files, but it is irritating. A siple sort will (at least) put the files in adjacent tabs. To clarify, this would be a selection (sort now) rather than an option (select to sort always) or default.

Youse guys are doin' great.

As Java developers usually don't mix .h and .cpp, I guess this is something for CND guys to consider. Of course donating a general action to the platform that would work for everyone would be ideal.
