I set up one window with a rather large number of tabs (its the window that has all my Greek word references) but now I may have some duplicates. I can hover over the resource icons to see what resource that icon is, but since I have to scroll the bar to see them all, and it appears the L4 reuses the same icon set for different resources, it gets confusing when I try to see all of what I've set up there. Is there a way to have it list the tabs in text form?

Have a great day,
jmac

L3 had this in the "Window" menu. There's no such thing in L4. Here's a few work-arounds:

You can switch to next tab with CTRL-TAB, but this is not restricted to one column/pane.

You could also temporarily resize your other tabbed columns to make your target column larger and open it up a bit more.

Or you could save your current layout close out everything but this tab and see what's there, then after noting your duplicates somewhere, reload the layout and delete them from the column (then resave your layout again).

Hey Jim,
Ditto to what Richard said.
You can also press Ctrl + Page Up / Down to scroll through just the tabs in one tile.

Very cool! I did not know that.

Okay, I've learned my one new thing for the day, and it's only 8am. What am I going to do the rest of the day?

Oh, I know: worship!

Richard, I see what you mean about CTL-TAB. It seems to switch between tabs in the order your last selected them. That doesn't quite help me cycle through the tabs in the order they are in.

The left and right arrow keys change the resource in the current tab but I'm not yet sure what list it's using to select resources from.

Being able to use the arrow keys to cycle through related resources is certainly among the top features of Libronix. I can still remember the aha experience I had when Mo first pointed it out.

Have a great day,
jmac

Mo, You da man. The CTL-<pageup/down> does it just fine.
