Summary0009882: Multiple duplication of tabulators
DescriptionA user asks for a new feature: multiple duplication of tabulators. His use case is that he often has to manually create adjacent tabulators with same gap, say, 20mm. So he want to juct create one with a given offset, then say how many more tabs like that he wants and click a "duplicate" button.
TagsNo tags attached.

i wonder if he should not be using tables...

it's just that in my experience, when tabs get complex, must of the time the best solution is to avoid using tabs...

even if i think that such a "duplicate" button would be cool to have, i'm not sure it would really help people sorting the issues they have with their workflow.

isn't this is a case for a script?

the question is "how many people will automate like this". I'm not sure there will be lots of people. Generally people have 2 or 3 tabs and they don't need to be the same distance (i guess).
so yes might be a case for a script
