Wanted to create a screen with 6 tabs, noticed that when they were left aligned only 5 tabs were displayed. But if I right aligned the tabs it worked fine.

Hi Robert, we only show the tabs that fit in the space provided. Maybe widening the tab control will make the 6th tab appear?

I run into a similar problem, but I can only see 4 tabs, if aligned right.

Edit: it looks like n-1 tabs are visible, if more then 4 tabs are displayed?

Hi,

I am having the same issue with the attached tabs icon. I need to add more than the provided four tabs.

Hello evrybody,

Well the padding of the tabs were not taken into account. Which lead to bit jumpy tabs because it depended on the text width only.

It is fixed in the prerelease which you can get here:

If you do not have too many tabs the gab between the furthest right tab and the control border will always be the same.

Greetings Florian

Hi,

I actually stumbled up this behavior today when working in myBalsamiq - all tabs are not shown when they are right aligned :( ... so I assume that it should be reopened at least for myBalsamiq
