Is there a way to put Netbeans open files tab bar into several rows? I have to scroll left and right when I open more than 3-4 files. For Firefox there is that extension "Tab Mix Plus" that provides that option. Is there a plugin or setting for this in Netbeans?

There used to be such tab bar in NetBeans 3 but it was removed. Go vote and maybe they will bring it back. Until then you just have to downgrade or get used pressing Shift+F4. – Antti Aug 23 '11 at 12:14
