Tab View and Export All

Bug Description

Wondering if anyone is working on a tab view for separate inkscape

This doesn't have to be fancy; just a way to quickly select among various
svg files opened, export all as bitmaps, and present all slides.

I know there is a hotkey to go back/forward but if you have 20 different
files open this doesn't really work too well.

An example of what I had in mind is NoteTab. You can open multiple files
and each file has it's own tab. You can quickly select which one to

Also, when you close NoteTab and then return, all the files that were open
in the previous session are opened in the NoteTab window. This is nice too
because if I have a large presentation and one file gets corrupted, the
rest are okay.

If these separate svg files could then be exported (Export All) with their
filenames (or optionally a sequence number based on window order,
alphabetical order, ...) then we are getting very close to a presentation

Finally, it would be nice if the exported graphics could then be displayed
in inkview (View Slideshow).

I want to use Inkscape as a screen design and presentation tool but it is
currently too cumbersome working with separate files.

Perhaps this is all possible with a simple script command and a right-click
option that shows all opened svg files. I will try some things myself and
let you know what I come up with.

Well tabbed browsing is a dupe of either bug 170257 or bug 171330, take your pic : ), but you seem to be suggesting additional features to be implemented after tabbed browsing is developed, so I won't mark this as a duplicate. It may have to wait a while, though...
