Issue with v7.3.3 Drag and Drop Tabs
Is anyone else having an issue where they can’t drag and drop their open tabs on the tab bar?
I’ve narrowed down the issue to occurring whenever “multi-line” is checked under the tab bar options. If I uncheck it, I can drag and drop again.
I am running portable 32-bit. This occurs on a fresh instance of NPP as well.
I too have found this bug appearing in 7.3.3. It wasn’t in previous versions.
I am running a 32-bit install on Windows 10 (64-bit) to use a wide range of plugins.
As an aside, I don’t like the new appearance of the tabs. They look clunky and old hat. Could we go back to the appearance in previous versions?
Turn off multiline tabs and it works.

Just upgraded from 7.3.2 to 7.3.3 moments ago. Having same problem with tabs not being draggable. Disabling multiline is not a solution when even on a 1920 pixel wide display, I have 3 rows of tabs when working on a small project.
Also noticed the change in tab style and strongly disapprove. Maybe it is a symptom of a bug? All tabs appear to be spaced father apart, with a pronounced bevel, and with a light grey bar across the top of each tab except for currently focused tab. The bars push the text on tab down, such that the bottoms of low-hanging letters *(g q j etc.) seem to hit the edge or get clipped. The colored bar on top of active tab seems to have a similar although not identical affect as the light grey bar on all inactive tabs. The tabs eat up more real-estate in the tab-bar panel than they need to.
Safe(er-ish) from the CIA, but not from code gremlins it seems. :-)
It seems that there’s some work on this issue for the next version (also seems this was released as is because of the dll hijack issue that had to be fixed)
