In web browsers you can drag the tabs to change the order. But I can't do that in Foxit Reader (version 3.1.4.1125, using Windows Vista Home, Chinese Traditional)

Example: I open 3 files:

 Page2.pdf
 Page3.pdf
 Page1.pdf

which opens Foxit Reader with a tab for each file, in the order

 Page2.pdf      Page3.pdf       Page1.pdf

Is there a way to change the order of the tabs to

 Page1.pdf      Page2.pdf       Page3.pdf 

?

This would really be helpful when you have many files open...

TIA! Harold

You have to open the files in the order of the tabs you want. There is no way to reorder the tabs. The feature has been requested but doesn't seem to be in Reader as of 3.14.

Thanks Joesph. Hopefully there will be an update soon... I'm going to write Foxit support. I'll post if I get an answer. BTW, I tried to go to the link you suggested, but it was down (& still is at the moment): "Sorry, the board is unavailable at the moment while we are testing some functionality." So I kept searching without finding an answer, but came across the superuser site and made a post. –  user24631 Jan 13 '10 at 6:54

In the later versions of Foxit Reader you are able to drag the tabs around in the order you prefer.

I know this one is old, but I think it's good if it is marked as solved :) –  Wilhelmsen Aug 22 '13 at 8:10
