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.

NetBeans 8.0.2

Tools > Options > Appearance > Document Tabs > Multi-row tabs

enter image description here


Now such a feature exists since v7.2.
