[wingide-users] Rearrange editor tabs?

+1 for tab re-ordering!


If we could have 2 vertical Tool Areas (one on each side of the editing
window), that would be just the bees knees! 


I'd echo Graham's comments about the smoothness of Wing. In addition, I'd
like to mention that I just love its lightweight feel. Netbeans & Aptana are
so bloated and slow. Wing almost fees as fast as a text editor. J

Hi Stephen,


I'd like to vote for both these features, particularly rearranging the tabs.
If this feature is implemented for the editor, please remember to implement
it for the toolboxes as well; I like different arrangements, depending on
what I'm doing.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for the reply.  Good to know that this cursor feature might become

Next question:  Is there a way to reorder the editor tabs? I see how to move
a tab/file to a new window, and move it back (so it goes to end of row of
tabs), but that's pretty laborious.  FWIW I like to order tabs left-to-right
from most general to most subsidiary, as this helps keep track of what's
happening when debugging.

Finally, I should say that I have now spent many hours with Wing IDE, and so
far it's been a smoother experience than with competing products.  It's the
first Python IDE that doesn't occasionally crash for me, and the code
completion is the best I've tried so far.  I actually feel like the
environment is actively helping me find my way around Python functions and
features, rather than requiring me to rely so heavily on other references.

yet have time to debug it.
