- If I open a new tab in SSMS, it should open on the RIGHT, not the LEFT.
- If I hit CTRL-TAB, focus should go to the next tab to the right. It should NOT go back to the left, unless I hit CTRL-SHIFT-TAB.
- If I use the tab dropdown on the right, focus should shift to the tab I select. The selected tab should NOT be moved to the leftmost position!
- If I open enough tabs that they won't all fit on the screen at once, an arrow (or arrows) should appear to help me navigate. If there are offscreen tabs to the right, an arrow on the right should appear. If there are offscreen tabs to the left, an arrow on the left should appear. Then I can scroll back and forth.
Again, the most important thing here: tabs should NOT move, unless I drag them to a new position. This is the most confusing aspect of working with SSMS. You might think that the "third" tab is the query you're looking for, when in fact it has been moved around and is now some other tab entirely. It makes for an incredibly frustrating user experience.
