>> A very tiny request: would it be much trouble to make the click target for the double chevron button on the rightmost tab (visible when more files are open than there is space for tabs) extend till the edge of the tab? I mis-click 7 out of 10 times…

This is on Mavericks.

That would probably make the difference between hit and miss. I always seem to click one pixel above or below the chevron somehow.

> On Mavericks and earlier it’s more difficult because the layout is “button” followed by 3 pixels of spacing and then “right edge image of tab”, where the latter visually has about 5 pixels of “tab area”, but making that the hotspot for the overflow button would require hardcoding in something which is otherwise general purpose code (to support multiple styles based on OS).

That is too much trouble I think. I’d also better take this opportunity to learn the keyboard shortcuts for cycling through tabs :-)

Thanks for looking into it.
