    Question – Is there a way to programmatically open a document in a new Horizontal/Vertical tab group? we are wanting to tile all open documents for the user upon their request from a form button.  In Essential 5.5 and prior, we programmatically tiled these documents for them in our code using code below.  However, it's are understanding there are no APIs available for these tiling actions?
                'tile the windows
                cmdMenu = gXMApp.CommandBars.item(“Menu bar”)
                cmdPopup = cmdMenu.Controls.item(“Window”)
                For j = cmdPopup.Controls.Count To 1 Step -1
                    If cmdPopup.Controls.Item(j).Caption.ToString.ToUpper = “TILE &VERTICALLY” Then
                        Exit For
                    End If

    That is correct. APIs for this have not been implemented for the new UI in 8.0.

    I will put in a feature request.
