Feature request: Open various files in different Tabs in Writer

Please can we have: Tabbed instances in LibreOffice like Firefox, (where there is increased productivity because of tabbed browsing in Firefox).

In other words please can we have a new feature that allows us to open various files in different Tabs in Writer?

@Indian-Art - Please post your feature request as an bug report under https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/
and add the word “enhancement” into the subject line.

Edit based on @oweng comment. He really has a great summary on this matter under

Has any thought been given to tabbed pages in documents? - #2 by oweng

I only can recommend to read @owengs’s answer and if appropriate add comments to the bug/enhancement posts.

@oweng - Thanks for pointing to your answer. I read it a while ago but forgot it. I am getting older. :wink:

@ROSt53 could you edit your answer to point to my lengthy answer here about this issue. There are already several bugs open relating to this type of feature and the OP needs to be more specific about exactly what they are requesting. I am going to bed, otherwise I would post an answer myself :slight_smile: Thanks.

Thanks for this. Could I prevail upon you to also change the AskLO thread text from using the source code style to just being plain text so that it works as a link? It is more convenient that way. Thanks again.


Much. Thank you.

Improvements are a never ending story!!!

@ROSt53 as per your instructions I have filed this officially with LO here: https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=64847

@oweng I have included your inputs by pasting your link.
