Tabbed Windows Extension
This is the wiki page of the Tabbed Windows Extension. You can find the latest extension snapshot and source code.
The Tabbed Windows Extension provides a tabbed window interface for OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 and later.
As one can see the extension provides only a very limited way to work with tabs, but nevertheless it shows what can be done with extensions now. Work is in progress to extend this version with more features and a better user interface.
The extension can be downloaded here (OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 and later, Windows and Linux i386)
A download package of the source code will follow. Feel free to play around with the source code. If you have question regarding it or if you want to submit patches to it join us on the "dev" mailing list of our framework.openoffice.org project.
A lot of work still must be done wrt. the user interface changes that created by a tabbed document arrangement. There are many things to consider. We started a Tabbed_Windows_Extension_Discussion wiki page to collect ideas, problems, possible solutions etc.
Everybody is invited to join us on the "discuss" mailing list in our ux.openoffice.org mailing list to discuss this interesting and exciting feature.
