Intelligent tab ordering

It would be useful to have commands for navigating between the document tabs in the order they were last viewed (ala Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab in VS.NET or VC6), not just prev/next in displayed order.

I will add this suggestion to the Zeus todo list.

however do not loose the ability to kb shortcut through the tabs in normal order. Intelligent tabbing can be somewhat annoying at times. Different shortcut keys maybe?

can tabs also be dragged around / re ordered

I use Zeus as my everyday editor and I think this feature is my number one request. I usually have 20-30 files open at once and it is a bit cumbersome toggling between the relevant tabs.

It would also be nice to be able to simply drag tabs to a new location. The WindowTabMoveNext and Previous functions are nice, but not as easy as dragging would be.

Using multiple rows to display all open tabs would also be a big help for those of us who keep open more files than fit on the screen.

The latest Zeus patch found here:

adds a WindowNextFocus and WindowPerviousFocus keyboard functions which implement this behaviour.

Naturally you will need to bind these functions to suitable keyboard key combinations ;)

If you find aany issues with these functions please post a message to this thread.
