A program designed with the intention to aid in the organisation of layout tabs in a drawing, the program enables the user to organise each layout tab using intuitively engineered buttons to move selected tabs up/down or to the top/bottom of the tab order.
The program also offers the ability to rename a layout tab by double-clicking on its entry in the list displayed, and furthermore add a prefix and/or suffix to selected/every layout tab.
A facility is also provided to add & delete layout tabs, and also sort the tabs into alphabetical, numerical, or architectural order; or reverse the order currently displayed.
A Find & Replace functionality is also offered to allow the user to quickly replace a text string in multiple layout tabs.
The user may also copy selected layout tabs, or set the selected entry as the current drawing layout.
A Help Dialog may be shown upon pressing H at the Main Dialog interface.
