Sorting Tabs in the Item Details Pane (plus a question)

It would be nice the ability to sort tabs in the Item Details Pane.

Unrelated Question:

Why is UltraRecall's Interface (Explorer Pane Tree) not as responsive as, for example, myBase's one?

UR's wonderful Logical Linking feature makes me steer away from myBase, but I don't understand how myBase's interface can be so much more responsive than UltraRecall's: both apps access a DB and do similar things.

UR's Interface is simply slow and I don't know if it'll get even slower with increasing size of my DB (which now is just under 4Mb!!!).

Maybe it's due to the fact that it saves the DB at every interaction?... I don't know if it's true.

myBase was my "tool" before I moved to UR. I have to admit that UR is slightly slower + it is getting a bit slower as my main database grows (slightly over 100 MB at the moment). Sometimes, it takes up to say 1-2 seconds when I navigate from one place to the other ... I'm not bothered too much, but I wouldn't complain if it were a bit faster. ;-)

I agree that UR is not as speedy as some other applications in this arena. I have complained about this in the past, but it has gotten better. It could be better still.

Have you tried the external repair tool on your database? Two of mine, much larger than yours, were running quite slowly. Just as an experiment, I repaired them and the performance improved noticeably.

Another suggestion is to use Kinook's suggested registry tweaks. There are some downsides - undo of changes to the tree is disabled - but that helps too.

I just meant being able to click and drag the tabs to reorder them, but I must admit that it's not that much important, it's a detail (I just expected the tabs to be draggable and found out I couldn't move them around).

Thank you, I'll search the suggested tweaks.
Maybe they're worth trying.

By the way, I got used to UR slowlyness, it's just that I didn't expect so big a difference with a very similar tool like myBase.

I suppose it's caused by the housekeeping that UR has to do with soooo many features available (which you won't find elsewhere) ...

I would also like to request the ability to reorder tabs by dragging them. Pretty much every modern web browser supports this functionality. I realize UR isn't primarily a web browser, but it's the same principle.
