Tabs Outliner CTRL-S not working (can't save)
I just started trying Tabs Outliner and so far it looks great,
but before I feel safe enough to close my open tabs, I'd really like to make a backup, so,
I've been trying CTRL-S like crazy to get an HTML list of my tabs but without any results (nothing happens).
Do you select the tabs outliner window before this?
Click somewhere in it before Ctrl-S.
You can also right click anywhere in empty place in TO window (or on buttons toolbar) and select Save As... from the context menu (but make sure you right click not on tabs but on empty space)
Yet Ctrl-S must work. Have no clue why it is not work for you.
You can also drag and drop root node in Google Doc or Word to export hierarchy.
Closed tabs not reopening
I had all of my tabs open in one window, and then used the "Save & Close All Open Windows" feature, but now none of the tabs will restore when double-clicked, and if I double-click a "Window" node, it simply opens an empty window. Do you know how to fix this, or am I doing something wrong?
Merging identical windows
For me the most common annoyance with this otherwise awesome extension is the handling of windows at reopening chrome.
1. I just make one window and give it a name as I want to keep it.
2. I close chrome with the preferred method (Save and Close All Open Windows).
3. I close the TO window.
4. I restart chrome.
5. I have my named window duplicated.
So the question is: could we have a (maybe switchable) function which simple looks at start if the a window opened by chrome has an identical copy in the tree, and if yes, just open that one instead of creating a new root element on the tree?
Is there any way to run Tabs Outliner as a single tab in Chrome?
Naming groups/windows could be smoother
First, I think when you create a new group or window, it should jump straight into changing its name. With the current renaming UI that would be intrusive, unless...
Second, I think the renaming UI would work a lot more smoothly if it mimicked Finder style. That is, when you rename something, it temporarily replaces the text with an editable version in the same location. This changes back to simple text display when you press enter, and reverts back to its original contents if you hit Esc or click anywhere outside of it.
Attached is a screenshot of Finder's renaming behavior.
Tab moves around in the list???
I'm going to assume for the moment that that is NOT desirable/coded behavior. I won't want tabs moving around unless I physically drag them somewhere else.
cant manage tabs
(this would be a feature I would like anyway if I knew how to turn it on and off :P )
Save and trash buttons still work and using chrome tabs outliner is updated.
Can't open tabs by double clicking after I move them around in the tree
I can open a bunch of tabs and open whichever one I want by double clicking on it. However, once I move a tab to re-order it in the tree, I cannot open that tab anymore from within the TO window. When I double click on it, it simply opens the parent tab. This is frustrating because I reorder my tabs frequently.
I tried closing and reopening chrome. I also tried reinstalling the extension.
Cleanup the settings UI
The current lineup of the settings window is a mess. There is a total amount of 2 selectable options which consume like 2 pages of text that nobody is willing to read and another 13 options which are "disabled".
I recommend you to outsource the walls of text for the two available options into some kind of a website (the google group should be fine) and make the actual option (the checkbox) as small as possible without missing too much of information. Usually you only need a few words to explain what an option is doing, the other part is just explaination and does not belong to the "settings".
The other options can just be removed. What do I get from seeing them except that these will maybe be implemented at some point in the future? Imo it's totally fine if you just write "More options to come like changing the color, user css costumisation etc."
> that nobody is willing to read
Actually, from what users are writing me, you are not right. Some even thanks me for detailed explanations.
Somebody not want to read? Nobody force to.
Plan to add a page of text after any option. Will have longest options screen, isn't it a cool idea? ; )
Open new links as child tab
Just like Tree Style tab in firefox?
