I really love Lotus WordPro's tabbed divisions and tabbed sections, which basically allow you to maneuver around long and complex documents very easily. There is no similar feature in Writer, though the Navigator has some of that functionality. For a clear example of what I mean look here: http://bw-users.netfirms.com/files/Tabbed_divisions.JPG Across the top of the document are a series of tabs each representing a different section/subsection of the document. The tabs are created and named as you select Create>Division or Create>Section from the menu. Tab one might be called "Introduction" and have several nested Subsections; the next main tab might be called BODY and contain subdivisions each containing both a chapter and even subsections themselves dividing the chapters up. footnotes/endnotes can then be created in a separate Bibliography division etc... Please consider creating this type of interface Feature. On the Boards over at OOdocs I've seen comments from others related to this being a favorite Lotus WordPro Feature.

Dudes! This IS NOT A DUPLICATE of 12686. 12686 is speaking of separate documents in each tab, as in the style of Firefox. What is being asked for here is "Divider tabs". The dividers are in the SAME document, not separate documents. It is a way of quickly going to chapters, etc. in your document. From Word Pro's help file: Divider tabs represent divisions and sections in a document. They can be used to structure a document and reveal its organization at a glance. Word Pro does not display divider tabs by default; you can display them by clicking the icon on your workspace. "Divider tabs" are an EXTREMELY powerful productivity tool. They are the main reason I have delayed switching from Word Pro to Open Office Writer. Please consider putting this request on a fast track. Many thanks, -T

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".

This is the one feature which keeps me using Lotus WordPro. Division Tabs make organisation of large documents so much easier.
