I am quite open to using a different tab control.
I might make my own or use another designer's tab control that fits in with the run-of-the-mill GUI. Hmmm, I’ve put some time into this look and feel, but I’m willing to consider a change, so I guess I should look at even exotic tab controls.
In the mean time, I will try to set up something safe.
