I'm sticking my nose in where it doesn't belong, as Americans say... but my guess is that while a tabbed GUI would be more complex to support, I'd be surprised if it required a change in the storage format...

That said, I would probably use tabs if they were present, but I can't say the feature is one I've consciously missed.


Thanks for all your work and the latest release, Jaap!

A tabbed view would involve a more complex GUI. Almost all users of
Zim highly appreciate the fact that, at its very core, Zim is just a
group of plain text files, which will survive Zim itself. I mean, even
though Zim ceases to exist, you would always be able to retrieve your
information from the text files. So, one expected requirement is that
any further development would not prevent Zim to save its data in this
txt format. If someone can write a plugin which adds tabbed view, that
might be an improvement, but I wouldn't welcome a tabbed view (or any
other new feature) if that means losing the simplicity at the base of
Zim.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi Jaap

I think it could be used to organize work.
For example, I could have a page for working on an issue.
In one tab I would have the description / functional doc
Another tab with a task list
Another for testing steps
Or maybe I could layout as one tab per development stage (dev/qa/imple)
I don't know... it could be useful I think

Hi Mario,

Sorry for the long timeout. Can you explain a little bit more what would
be the use case for such a tabbed interface?

Regards,

Jaap

Hi guys

I'm a zim user and joined the list because I think zim is one of the best
practical tools.

Sometimes I feel that a good feature would be that each page could have
'tabs'.
Maybe a page would need composed by several pages but spreading them in a
horizontal rather than vertical layout.

What do you think ?
