Description clever 2004-04-21 21:42:13 UTC
After using the new tabbed document interface for
some time, I would like to propose a change.

Currently, the left and right arrows for scrolling
through available open files is on the right side
of the tab area. When I scan to the left and
desire to scroll left, I find that I have to
relocate my mouse to the right side of the area.

My proposal is to move the left/right arrows to be
on their corresponding sides of the tab area. So
that when a user is focused on wither the right or
left side, they have at their fingertips that
scrolling option.

A good example of this is any other scrolling area
in most windowing systems, including the scroll
pane in Java.

Good work!
