[TYPO3-templavoila] Wish list for TV

Hi Steffen,
yes I agree with you, that they are good for grouping data, but I also 
think, that tabs shouldn't just be used just because you can, ie, just 
because they were introduced in 4.2, doesn't mean they make life easier. 
Tabbed interfaces means many more clicks, to do the same job.  I just wanted 
you to consider a possibility to be able to turn them off. Or use them 
wisely. My argument is, that if you're a power user, it's much faster to 
work without tabs, because you can scroll down the formular with the 
mousewheel. Take the text CE - why does it always start on the "General" 
tab, when say, 99% of the time, you want to work in the editor? If I work on 
a daily basis with implementing designs (as I do), I know I'd quickly get 
fed up with the tabbed interface in TV.

There are plenty of people who want to know, how you can disable the tabbed 
interface in 4.2 - Google at least showed up a lot of interest in this.
