[Clip] Re: Clip to do alphabetic sort on open document t
- A few days ago I asked about pointers for a clip which would sort the tabs
of open documents, to rearrange them in alphabetical order
Charlie Raine replied with a nice clip which gives me an alphabetically
sorted dialog/pick list of documents to focus. Thanks Charlie, it works
well, but I wanted to sort the tabs so I can know where to find documents as
I need them. I don't want to open a dialog every time I want to view another
Ray Fitzgerald suggested using the Quick list to do the same thing. It's a
nice idea, but I habitually use the Quick list to view disk files-mostly
image files to drag into HTML files I'm editing.
I still want to know whether it's possible to sort the document tabs, and I
guess that the lack of suggestions of how to do this means that it can't be

Tabs. That would be a very nice feature though don't you think?
I don't think it would have to be elaborate like in sort

I have Clips that will allow you to open selected files in a
directory (or a whole directory) that I could modify a little to
open the files in order by name, type, date, size using
^$GetFileFirst$ if you would be interested in it. Of course once
you add more files you would no longer have the ordering for the

have 4 files that are always open and I want them always first but with
tabs wrapped & more than one row, Windows changes their positions every
time I edit a file. It's very aggrevating and makes finding the file
you want very difficult! If you have the Quick List open, the easiest
way to deal with the file tabs is to right click & switch between the
Documents & Disk Files views. If you prefer the keyboard, Alt+T L D or F.
& to select a document, Shift+F7 & first letter of file. Shift+F7 again
to get back to document edit area.
