Multiple tabs in script editor

I just spotted that I can create multiple tabs in the script editor.

Is this purely for organisational purposes when using a lot of data sources or is there some other reason why I would want to make use of multiple tabs in the editor.

Multiple tabs in script editor

hi,

I just think it makes things easier to manage - like having chapter headings - by allowing to group things functionally. the script runs sequentially but you can create and call subroutines if that is how you code.

I generally would use a new tab for any new sql query or specific functional area of the script, like declaring all my variables on one tab.

As far as I know it is only to organise your script.

TIP: You can easily breakup your current script by placing your cursor at the line where you want to start a new tab, then go to Tab (menu) and select "Inser tab at Cursor"

TIP2 :

If you type the following line in your scrip it will create a new tab after the next load.

///$tab Name NewTab

Maybe it can be usefull ...
