I've shared some of Jared Spool's findings on tabbed dialog boxes with our
main Windows 95 developer. He found it interesting, but would have liked a
solution to the problem! One thing he is thinking of doing is, instead of
having one Options command with a huge number of tabs, having several
Options commands (e.g. Tool Options, View Options, and so on), each with a
smaller number of tabs. Seems to me that would be somewhat more usable. What
do you think?
