Any way for file tabs to display in buffer order?
« on: May 14, 2013, 06:01:10 pm »
I'm only trying using out File Tabs for the first time now, in Beta3, and finding I really wish they displayed in buffer order. So that as I use my hotkeys for next-buffer and prev-buffer, the active tab just moves left and right through the file tab list. None of the current ordering options seem to give this behavior, so as I use my hotkeys the active tab is jumping all over the place.

If I understand your question, then you could use commands:
next_doc_tab
prev_doc_tab

Or, if you are still using the old File Tabs tool window, the following will work for both:
next_buff_tab
prev_buff_tab

How about this: Let me pick the buffer sort order and make the tab display and cycling order match it.

Possible buffer sort order: The current (random or undefined?) ordering that slick uses, alphbetical (By path first then filename, or by filename first then pathname), MRU, others?
