New question #462821 on qpdfview:

I use qpdfview to open many PDFs with very long names at once. I specifically 
wanted to use a tabbed viewer to do this so that I don't have to search through 
a large number of individual open windows.

My previous solution was to group all (untabbed) PDF viewer windows together in 
a tabbed window at the window manager level (Fluxbox has this functionality), 
but this does not allow me to maintain multiple windows with different 
selections of related tabs.

I was hoping that qpdfview would help me to solve this problem (and I see that 
the most recent development version has made it easier to move files between 
windows, which is great).  However, at the moment the tabs are almost 
completely useless for navigation because the names are all abbreviated to 

I would prefer to have the tabs stacked vertically, the way e.g. Tree Style Tab 
stacks tabs in Firefox (disregarding the "tree" part). I can change the 
position of the tabs in qpdfview, but when the tabs are positioned on the left 
or right, the labels are rotated so that the text is vertical.

I was hoping that I could override this behaviour using a stylesheet, but it 
doesn't look like this is possible.

Is there any possibility of adding an alternative tab widget, with horizontal 
labels and a configurable width?
