Doesn't work in IntelliJ 11. First of all it is unaware of multiple rows of tabs. It is also unaware of "Split Vertically" view. If you order alphabetically, the tabs are totally not alphabetically. Maybe because it's confused if there are multiple rows of tabs...

I should have said, I am on a Mac *using IntelliJ 8* and I can't get the mouse drag and drop to work. I would rate it a 5 if that were working. Maybe I have to do something to enable it besides just installing the plugin?

I really like it, but I would LOVE it if it could (optionally) sort the tabs in a case insensitive way.

Can't believe it's not a standarad thing in IntelliJ, it's one of the things I miss from Eclipse!

One request though, would it be possible to allow tabs to be dragged between groups? I like to split horizontally and have two groups to work with.

Thank you for writing this wonderful plugin :)

It does seem like this should be part of the core distribution though. One suggestion for improvement is this:

When dragging a tab, it would be great if a little carat or marker icon would show you where your tab will end up. As an additional flourish, having the tab you're dragging animate into position (like Google Chrome) would be superb; not sure if IDEA's API allows something that complex though.

What about IDEA v8? This is such basic functionality I can't believe it's not part of the core distrobution yet.

It is so strange that this plugin can only sort the tabs by each tab-row.
The version of the plugin is 1.2.3, and the version of IDEA is 6.0.5.
