Yes its true! Drawing Tabs are now part of the core AutoCAD 2014 product and now named File Tabs.
Back on Halloween (31 October 2006) I posted on this blog a Bonus Tool named Drawing Tabs also MDITabs. The Bonus Tool was very very popular and when some API versions changed in AutoCAD I would have to make calls encouraging someone to please assign a developer to update it. We re-released it several times for new versions until we added it to the Autodesk App Exchange last year for AutoCAD 2013. But now it is built right into AutoCAD 2014 as File Tabs. Thank you AutoCAD Team for incorporating this.
Here is File Tabs in a nutshell
File Tabs are the little tabs located at the upper left of your drawing window that allow you to select the file tab you want to switch to. It shows a File Tab for each open drawing as well as has some other built in functionality.
When hovering over the File tab you can see all the Layouts in the drawing using the QuickView Drawing and easily select the one you want active.
You can also QuickView Layouts in other File Tab open drawings, not just the active one. This allows you to quickly find visually what you are looking for.
You can Plot & Publish from the preview as well.
Right-click on the File Tab and you get the options:
Create a New drawing
Open and existing drawing
Save All drawings
Close the current drawing
Close All drawings
Close all but the selected drawing tab
Copy the file path
Open the file location in Windows Explorer
An asterisk on the File tab indicates the drawing has changed since last save.
So from now on people wont have to search my blog or install an app to get the File Tabs (Drawing Tabs) functionality they loved.
