Not list own Tabs Outliner's window in the tree

Alexander Dvinsky 7 years ago updated by MZ Guy 5 years ago 3
Currenly Tab Outliner's window is shown in the tree along with all other windows and tabs with a constant structure of "Window (popup)" and a single tab below it "Tabs Outliner".
It should probably be filtered out.

Why can't I used shift/ctrl for selecting multiple tabs/windows?

Yousef Haidar 5 years ago 0

I believe the current functions for the shit/ctrl + click are rather ridiculous and can easily be implemented with a button or rather just simply removed as one can simply do them with the right click button(I am talkin about google chrome's 'open link in new tab/window').

What I am suggesting is, allow the user to press shift/ctrl and click to select multiple tab/windows and preform a given function, like delete or move.


Tabs Outliner doesn't recognize paid mode after Chrome re-install

Joe 3 years ago updated by huffstutler.daniel 3 months ago 8

I reinstalled my OS and I'm unable to associate my email address with Tabs Outliner to enable paid mode.

Clicking the Purchase License directs me to a shopping cart.  I already have a license, but I don't know how to enable it.


Sort tabs in windows --> dedupe tabs

Jeff Eddings 5 years ago updated by August Mohr 5 years ago 2

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 an actual dedupe feature, but that sounds complicated and hard. :)


A close button in the address bar

8 years ago updated by vladyslav.volovyk 8 years ago 1

This extension would gain many points in my view if I didn't have to hunt for the tab in the outliner when I want to save close one. Isn't there a possibility to add a button on the right side of the omni bar, next to the bookmark star, that would do this? A keyboard shortcut for bonus points? 

There's just too much mousing involved right now, and I (and many internetters like myself) really dislike mousing.

Thanks for a great extension, I'm really hoping something like this could be done.


Allow TO user to "lock" selected URLs

Hans BKK 8 years ago updated by Odoo Concept 1 year ago 8

The docs are right, once you get used to the paradigm TO's a great tool. I'm finding one thing very frustrating that may well be my fault, I can't believe Vladyslav doesn't have the same need it seems so basic. With a "normal bookmark", it doesn't change in normal use, you have to go back to the "manage bookmarks" function in order to update it a new location/parameters whatever. But with TO the placeholders are "live" and when I click around and change the app in that tab, I lose the original pointer.

This is of course great - some sessions are a "work in progress" so when I restore and then continue navigating, I want the saved tabs to be kept up to date with the live session. 

However other pages ("sticky"? "locked"?) are just starting points, say to a particular viewport/zoom level on a googleMap, and I want the "bookmark" back in TO to keep that particular URL as static, NOT keep updating as I click around in that tab.

My current workaround is to (try to remember to) use Chrome's "Duplicate" tab function and then quickly close/save the TO tab, and do all my navigating in a "temporary/scratch/working" copy tab, then closing it from the browser knowing the original "bookmark" is back in TO.

I would suggest a little "lock/unlock" icon, defaulting to unlocked which means "leave this URL unchanged" no matter what is done after launching it in the browser.

This would also function as a "don't lose this if I close the window from the browser" button - right now I'm putting nothing-but-an-x notes below hundreds of saved tabs because I'm constantly forgetting to save/close from the TO panel, very kludgey workaround.

This is a tremendous application Vladyslav, just some minor suggestions, overall THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!


Option/button to delete all duplicate tabs with the same URL

Will 2 years ago 0

I have some 2k+ tabs open from crashed sessions. It would be a lot easier to clean them out if I could judge each tab once and close all the duplicates of that tab everywhere in my trees.


Major kudos to Vladyslav

I'm really big on using hierarchical outlines to organize my thinking, so I'm finding this a GREAT tool to help keep my OCD/ADD browsing habits under control.

Option to turn off scrolling OR just show the whole tree when there's only a few tabs

ven Torrella 8 years ago updated by Jonathan Levi 4 years ago 7

Hi, I've just started using TO and I'm trying to train myself in using this and I 'm starting to like it. However, i don't like the behavior of auto scrolling to the active window too much. The reason is, while this is useful when there are a lot of tabs open, that is not always the case, sometimes i will have just a couple of tabs in each window.

So, what i'm saying is, as the title suggest, an option to turn off auto scrolling  can be useful, or better yet, just show the whole tree if there's only a few tabs active and auto scroll only if the whole tree doesn't fit in the window.

Thank you.

Note please that in this case, when you have "just a couple of tabs in each window" and only several windows you actually rarely need Tabs Outliner in a first place. So I am not sure it is worth to tweak anything to make this case perfect, as in real life TO will be not used or bringed to front anyway when there is only several windows with only a couple of tabs.
