Feature request: option to not re-arrange tab lines

  • When working in notepad++ i frequently have multiple row of tabs open.
    As is described in the notepad++ wiki entry on the tab bar, it will move the tab row of whatever tab i have open to the bottom. Resulting in my tab bar rearranging itself close to every time i change tab.
    I would like the option to disable this behaviour. I do not see the use in this behaviour and instead it is somewhat annoying as i lose my mental overview of tabs every time this rearrangement is made.

    It would also be nice to have the option to unify tab width across rows and/or specify a fixed tab width to keep the bar more orderly.

  • That always bothered me too. I don’t use tabs at all any more–I use the Window Manager plugin, which lets me see my open files sorted by name, extension, or file path. You can find it in this list: http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php/Plugins_By_Category
