Only some restored tabs are pinned

MZ Guy 8 years ago updated by Brendan Weibrecht 6 months ago 10
I have several windows that I save and restore with each time I restart Chrome. One of these windows has several pinned tabs. When restoring, TO seems to restore all the tabs as pinned, except for the first in the window / list. The first tab in the window gets restored unpinned.

Share license across Google accounts

Grega 5 years ago updated by Luciano Commendatore 5 years ago 5

Hi! I'm using two Google accounts/profiles in my Chrome, one is for work and one is personal. I recently purchased Tabs Outliner but I was sad to discover that license was only applied to one of these two profiles. Is this intended? What can I do to use the license on both profiles?



Please open the source

I know this isn't easy, but it shouldn't also be easy to see your child orphaned. It's been 2 years you don't publish any new public versions.

It seems now that GDrive had changed its URL or something, and viewing backups got broken. New changes will come that require fixes, and I fear some day TO will go inoperable.

That is summed to the years-old issue of the licensing tool, that only works on Chrome. You've been forcing us into Chrome for years. We wanna move to Vivaldi and Brave, but must remain on Chrome.

The sad fact is that browsers extensions isn't a profitable business. Few ppl buy extensions for browsers that are free. I'd pay a subscription, but even fewer would. And charging once for a lifetime license isn't sustainable.

A few months ago Sandboxie was made freeware, and its owner is promising to open its source. I had also bought its lifetime license and used its features for years, and now they are free for anybody, and we lost our support and will need to hope an open source community to rise and support it.

This is also sad and hard, but it's still better than have a software we love and use everyday, and which we bought, to die like that.

Don't let this happen. There's no other tabs manager nearly as good as yours. We bought it, we supported you. Many of us are willing to subscribe if that brings your hard work back. If you can't, or you think we're not numbered enough to bother, then just open the source so we can hope somebody else can take it.

See ClassicShell in example.


Sort tabs in folders

Larry Farnsworth 6 years ago updated by Brett Adam 3 years ago 4

I create quite a few tabs in a window, and the list gets quite big. Sometimes I inadvertently create a tab that is the same as one in the list. I would love to be able to sort the tabs in a window so I can easily see duplicate tabs and remove them. Ideally I'd love a dedupe feature, but that sounds complicated and hard. :)

Should TO remember if a tab was pinned?

Kyle Milnes 9 years ago updated by James Maheux 7 years ago 5

Per subject, as of writing, To doesn't restore tabs as pinned (if they were previously pinned).

vladyslav.volovyk 9 years ago

It is by design. When TO moves or restore pined tabs it unpin them. Restoring tabs as pinned have some far-reaching drawbacks, as they are moved by chrome to be the first tabs in the tab strip and have some other special behaviors  The best solution I found after long experiments, to numerous problems, is simple unpin tabs upon restore. Maybe need put this in option actually. Yet I am not sure it is so critical to do anything about this. If there was many votes for this I will add such option.

Personally i never use pined tabs so i even unsure how people are using them and in what practical scenarious.


Microsoft Edge on Chrome - allow sync across OneDrive

Jim0206 3 years ago updated by Racko The Third 3 months ago 5

Now that Microsoft Edge is being developed using the chromium engine and it can use Chrome extensions, please can Tabs Outliner support it?

I have installed Tabs Outliner in 'Edge dev', and it seems to be excellent, considering the limitations of chromium in that it will not allow the Tabs Outliner window to be permanently there within the window, like Firefox allows with similar extensions. 

I've recently got a new laptop so am looking at ways that I can work across both desktop and laptop without losing productivity.  Tabs Outliner seems to be an excellent option, and if I can get this sorted then a paid upgrade is a definite.

Regrettably, it does not let me save backups to the google drive, because it is Edge dev not Google Chrome, and I'm logged in to my OneDrive account, not my Google account.  I use Edge for different things than Google Chrome.

I am also now planning to use it in Google Chrome, and in that, Tabs Outliner runs separate from the instance in Edge beta, and happily allows me to select my google account to backup to.

"Attach to Chrome" Option

Strix 8 years ago updated by Philip von Feilitzsch 5 years ago 3
I suggest that you add an "attach to Chrome" option. With it enabled, the menu of Tabs Outliner would be attached to the browser – such as in the Firefox extension "Tree Style Tabs" – instead of staying in a separate window or tab. As far as I know, yes, it's possible to add sidebars in Chrome – just search the web for "sidebar chrome".

Or simply add some kind of dropdown menu.
vladyslav.volovyk 8 years ago
Not a top priority, but yes, it will be cool to have such feature.

Worth to note that that this can even be done by separate extension. Which will create own, always attached to the Chrome side panel, or the native sidebar, if this is really possible, and then open Tabs Outliner main view in this panel - it's easily possible as the Tabs Outliner View is just the regular web page with an url, and so it can be opened in a regular tab or a frame (for example it is the way how cloned views created in regular tabs, by using the Clone button)

This extension will also be able also to serve other pages in such a sidebar - very cool idea.

If some web developer reading this - consider to implement such an extension. It will be utilized then by many other extensions.

Maybe it is even already created.... the idea is very cool, need to investigate.

TO Extension for Opera Sidebar

CAVR 7 years ago updated by Root-Core 2 years ago 10
Now that Opera supports sidebar extensions (addons.opera.com/en/extensions/?tag=sidebar), it would be awesome to see a TO implementation for the browser taking advantage of that.

Use license with multiple profiles?

Dustin Wehr 6 years ago updated by CodedToday 4 years ago 2

I like to use a separate profile for testing my code, so I can install any extensions without much consideration of security. Chrome doesn't let you sign in to the same account from two profiles on a single computer. Is there any way to do this?


where enter license key paid version

Bob Onysko 4 years ago updated by Brendan Weibrecht 1 year ago 3

I can't find where to enter my license key for the paid version.  Also, I am using Tabs Outliner on a laptop where the mother board had to be replaced.  Is there a requirement so that I can continue to use this great program without repaying the fee?
