Parent node format - Empty parent nodes after crash

Sirt 8 years ago updated 8 years ago 3

I have just started using your extension, and it seems to be a very promising one. After Chrome crashed, I opened it again, clicked on Tabs Outliner button to open its tab, and double-clicked to open one of the crashed tabs from the previous session. So far so good. But then I noticed that there are two kinds of formatting in windows (parent nodes): Window (crashed Sat Mar 23 2013) is sometimes in grey-blue and sometimes in bold green. The crash happened around midnight. Are the windows that crashed after midnight in bold green to indicate that they are today's windows, perhaps? I didn't find any info on this in the documentation.

What's more important, though, there are some "Window (crashed Sun Mar 24 2013)" windows without any tabs under them. When double-clicked, they open a new blank tab. I am worried that they contained tabs that were lost after the crash. Is this possible? Any help appreciated!

Clone View?

pc world 8 years ago updated by vladyslav.volovyk 5 years ago 3

I guess I do not really understand what that "Clone View" is for...

From the tooltip it seems that it's just a Tabs Outliner window with auto-scrolling disabled. So, why not just a button or setting to turn auto-scrolling on and off?

Also, is the Clone View supposed to open in a usual Chrome window (at least that's the case for me)? If so, why?

By the way, thanks for your great work :)


UI that more closely resembles Chrome

Corey Gouker 5 years ago updated by Bjorn Stabell 2 years ago 1

Really enjoy Tabs Outliner since switching from Session Buddy. It's a better plugin overall. That being said I definitely "appreciate" the way Session Buddy seems like a proper extension of Chrome, its GUI definitely matches the default Chrome styling. Would love to see a second UI option that looks more like Chrome.

Thanks for the excellent work!


How to transfer tab outlines between different versions of Chrome?

M. Scott Marshall 6 years ago updated by vladyslav.volovyk 6 years ago 1
I just installed 64 bit Chrome and would like to transfer the data from the Tabs Outliner in my 32 bit Chrome to the Tabs Outliner in my new 64 bit Chrome. What is the best way to go about this? The closest that I've come is to "Save as" Tabs Outliner window to an HTML file and load it into the new Chrome as a web page but importing the links requires me to open them one by one.

First of all note that you can move the whole windows hierarchies, by drag and drop, from the saved HTML file to the TO window.

There is also possible to transfer the whole database to a new Chrome instance:
But please make a Ctrl-S backup before this, as during this you will lost the present data in the target instance of Tabs Outliner

Having close etc buttons on left

Related to a request within another request from Roel.  Have you considered having the option to put the close / trash / note buttons on the left of the tree?  Is this something that can be adjusted with the CCS?

I'm having a problem saving, TO won't save and won't close.  There isn't a way to close the popup warning that your about to save and close all tabs. I'm saving to Dropbox and can see saved tabs.

Last used order

This is an excellent extension!

I would like my windows to be listed in the order they were last used. Maybe that could be a user setting.

Thank you!

Save nodes *always* option/mode?

aprobe 8 years ago updated by vladyslav.volovyk 8 years ago 3

ATM, nodes are removed from the tree, when closing windows with the Chrome's default close button, *when all the nodes in a "Window" node are opened* (and they don't "have any special or marked nodes inside the hierarchy", "custom title", etc.).
(If only some are opened, they are automatically stored when closing the window in the same way).

IMHO, the default state of this option should save the nodes always, because now I could still imagine someone (mainly newbies) having all the sub-nodes in a "Window" node opened (again, without "any special or marked nodes inside the hierarchy", "custom title", etc.) and loosing them after closing the window with chrome's close button, especially after the comments in the store that now the ""bug" is fixed" and the nodes are auto-saved, when the window is closed the "default" way.
