Description angleworm 2009-04-26 01:18:34 UTC
I often find that I have to stop coding to close a large number of editor tabs which I'm no longer using, in order to
have room for the three or four tabs that I'm currently working with. Back when I used Eclipse, there was a feature
whereby I could specify a maximum number of open editor tabs, and when that number was exceeded the least recently used
tab would automatically be closed. This would be a great feature to have in NetBeans.

If this get's too hectic, I found a workaround that is not too bad:

Window -> Documents (CTRL+shift+E)
Order it by recently used
Select the bottom half of the files (adjust to taste:)
Close Document(s)

Thanks! Finally my wish is granted. But is there any chance of a version for NetBeans 8.1 or 8.2?
