oops! I posted this suggestion at PlasmaSolution's (Thomas Beck) SneakPeek video for the new bevel command, and he directed me to contact Howardt. I assumed it must be through this website. Sincere apologies!

Can we hide these tabs? Clutter can be reduced if the selected tabs can be hidden away till they are needed again. Another advantage is that when there are too many tabs, the tabs start showing truncated names. So having fewer tabs means every tab shows its full name.
