1) Open a number of resources all across the screen:

2) Open a new resource by dragging it to a second panel at the right half of the screen.

3) Close that right panel again.

4) Make sure another tab than the first is at the top. (This step needs further testing. Having the first tab active seems to reduce rearrangement.)

5) Go to Layouts and click the 'one tile icon'. (Dragging it to the shortcut bar simplifies repeated testing.)

>> The tabs rearrange themselves:

It is bad enough that tabs rearrange themselves when you first float and then redock resources, but this?? I'm essentially just widening the panel, albeit with another method than manually dragging it. There is no reason whatsoever for Logos to rearrange things.

(Since I'm always using a full screen layout whenever possible, due to the large font size I need, and since manually dragging a panel from half to full screen tends to take me a minute or more, with multiple beachballs and the panel jumping back and forth to various widths, I was trying to find a faster way to enlarge it. If it hadn't been for this bug, I would have found one.)

I am able to reproduce this issue without needing to do steps 2 and 3. However, the only rearrangement I see is that the tab in focus moves to the first spot (so, it moves all the way to the left). Can you confirm that this is what you are seeing?

The one exception I found was that when the Library was open in the tab adjacent to the tab in focus, the Library would occasionally move to the second spot (so, second from the far left). This did not occur every time.

No, that's not what I saw. I'm too much in the middle of things to try anything now, but from what I remember:

• When I first came across it, I had 7 or 8 tabs open, and there was a major rearrangement. I probably had to move 5 or more tabs to get back to where I was.

• I then tried to reproduce it for you with screenshots. Those attempts never got as bad as the first, accidental, one, but if you look closer you will see that my screenshots go from 12345 to 32145, i e worse than what you say you get.

• At some point I happened to leave the first tab in focus and thought I didn't see any rearrangement then, so I tried that a couple of times extra. That did leave me with only one tab moved, but those are the only times I saw only one tab moved. (Plus it made me doubt that there really was no rearrangement the first time; I was expecting something very visible, so I might easily have missed Library switching place with Collections, or one resource with the other. As you can see in other threads my eyesight isn't that good anymore, and I wasn't paying that close attention.)
