SQLDeveloper: Use files panel instead of missing vertical tabs

Vertical tabs are absolute good for big monitors. I think it’s a killer feature for any conmporary IDE, still only few implement it. Unfortunately there’s no option in Oracle SQLDeveloper to switch to vertical tabs. But there’s a feature request for vertical tabs. So please vote for it!
It’s pity, but let’s face the truth waiting for it may take long, mainly because SQLDeveloper IDE is a fork of JDeveloper. But here’s a relief for those who don’t want to wait. By now you can use Files panel (View->Files) instead of vertical tabs. If you want new tab/file to appear in you folder of choise, just save a new Worksheet with some name and it will instantly appear in Files browser, so you can open it by double click.
