I would like to open a saved tab into the current workspace, either as a new zone, or as a tab in one of the existing zones. I understand that this is not currently possible, and that one has to use the following procedure:

  1. Open the saved tab using File > Open. The tab opens into a new workspace where there is only one zone and one tab.
  2. To get the tab into the current workspace, one must drag it to the Accordance icon in the Quicklaunch toolbar (Windows), then wait for the right workspace to appear, then drag the tab to the correct place in the workspace.

It is, of course, possible to use this procedure, but it seems rather cumbersome.

 

I would like to request that one be able to open saved tabs from the New Tab button on the toolbar so that they open into the current workspace, just like one can open Recent Papers, Stacks, User Tools, and User Notes, into an existing workspace and zone. Another way of opening the saved tab into the current workspace would also be fine, but this way seems quite obvious since it's all about opening tabs.

 

Thank you for considering this request.

I had reason to want this recently in loading a reference list tab if I recall the case correctly. In any case I think this would be useful.

Yes, it was in working with reference lists that I became aware of this need. Other user objects like papers, stacks and user note files are already catered for, but reference lists have to be saved as a tab. Hence the need to open the tab into the current workspace. But I think the functionality would have a wider usefulness as well.
