We made a decision to support the SDI interface because we felt it was best suited for the Ultra Recall application, and best modeled the way Ultra Recall was designed. We did carefully consider both designs, but ultimately chose SDI.

We also agree that allowing multiple tabs (for different Info Items) within an Ultra Recall instance could be a benefit, and we have this capability on our future enhancements list.

The reasons that complicate providing a "tabbed" interface in Ultra Recall include:
1) The extensive undo/redo capability provided
2) Go Forward/Go Back navigation
3) The numerous related Panes in the Ultra Recall application
4) Truncating of titles for each tabbed Info Item might limit the usefulness of the interface change.
