Mildly frustrating

Hello, all,

 

There is one thing that has been mildly frustrating and I've put it off long enough.

 

I have Dw set so that it will automatically open the files that were left open when Dw closed.

 

Every time I start Dw, the file tab that had the focus when I closed Dw (assuming more than one file opened) gets moved to the far right (still has focus).

 

Why?  What is the point?  I don't care if the last focus gets focus back when Dw opens, but moving it to the far right (esp if I have 20+ documents open) is annoying.  Is there a fix, for this?

 

V/r,

Are you aware that you can click and drag document tabs to reorder them?

Don't the files open in ascending, alpha-numeric order?

Not on my Dw.  Every file, except the file that had focus when Dw was closed, are still in the same order in which I opened them. 

 

Now, if I highlight several files and right-click to open, then yes, they do open in alphanumeric order.  But I usually open files one at a time, as I need them, so there's not necessarily an alphanumeric order to them.

 

V/r,
