Hi!

I'm really looking forward to start using your plugin.

However, after installation, I don't see any effect on my Eclipse Neon.

Should the tabs be arranged automatically in vertical manner, or should I somehow enable this feature?

So, for now unfortunately the status is that plugin doesn't work.

Like the other commentator, I sorely miss the EditorList plugin. This provides one function of that plugin. You can see a list of the open files. Unfortunately, you can't really close the files from the plugin which is a big deal. Also, the sort is a little flakey. I don't think as new files are loaded, the list stays sorted. It would be nice if these two things got fixed. Also, I really don't need a confirmation dialog to remove files from the list.

Exactly what I needed. Have been looking for a plug-in like this since Editor List quit support after Eclipse 3.7.

One issue I am seeing though is that I am getting a popup dialog with error:
An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: An invalid or illegal XML character is specified.

The log shows the following for vertical.tab.list:
saveState memento <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

and the dump:
org.w3c.dom.DOMException: INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: An invalid or illegal XML character is specified.

I couldn't find a place to submit a bug report or any forums for this plug-in, so included this info in a review.
