However if you are going to drag a lot, consider making document 1 a
pasteboard document (document/use as pasteboard or shift+control+p), and
then anything you cut and paste in document two, three, four, etc., will be
pasted into document 1.
Also you can reorder the tabs by dragging and dropping so document one and
document 4 can be next to each other.
Thus you can use control + tab to move right and shift + control + tab to
move left. I think between these three things (two windows, reordering
tabs, and "tab jumping with control + tab") you have what you need already
at your finger tips.
Also you can switch between whole sets of documents using the favorites

easier (thought it wasn't that bad to begin with -
NoteTab is great). I guess I'm just used to a
"Recently used" order of tab jumping. I know for
other people it isn't intuitive. What do you think
about an option to choose the order (I think it would
go in the tab bar section of the options)?
