When I click the ‘View PDF’ button it would be great if the PDFs opened in tabs next to the current tab, which is default tab-opening behavior in general.
We open the tabs through the Chrome extension. I don’t know off the top of my head if it’s technically possible to influence the order where the new tab opens. But I would assume it’s possible. I’ve made a note in our internal bug tracker to investigate that.
I’d like to second/bump this request. It’s quite cumbersome when you are working on a project with a dozen or more tabs open and you cannot control where they pop up. As per epistasis’ comment, having the tab open up immediately to the right of the tab you are working in in Paperpile should be the default behaviour.
(At the moment, in my case, the tabs are most often appearing to the right of the first tab I have open.)
