Document windows and tabs within windows treat current note selections in different ways:
- Use windows to view the same note in different views - selection is common to all windows
- Use tabs to use the same view with different selected notes - selection is discrete to the tab
Windows. All windows from the same document share a selection. If one window changes selection the current tab of all other windows changes to the selection, although the scope of the view does not change, i.e. the tab in other windows may show note text data for a note not currently visible in that tab's view.
Tabs. Each window tab supports its own selection. However, if there are multiple windows , another window may change its selection unexpectedly.
Although new windows replicate all source window tabs it is a good idea to delete all tabs except the desired view type for more predictable selection change caused by window/tab focus changes.
From v8.6.0, if a tab's view type is changed, the view scrolls to show the selected item.
