I'm working for an enterprise application for the screen to create invoice from Delivery Notes. Users can add a few or a lot of Delivery Notes in the invoice form. Each delivery note add a tab in the screen but if there are too many tabs, it creates a second line of tabs. This solution is not OK because it takes space in the screen and we prefer keep space for the table content (the table have much more columns and lines than the one in the wireframe)
I'm looking for other ideas for these case.
1 - Enable horizontal scrolling for tabs and guide users with a clickable arrow icon. The question is : Is it enough intuitive ? 2 - Add a dropdown list to select a tab not visible. The question is : how to display the tab selected with the dropdown ?
Any others ideas or any suggestions ?
Thanks a lot :)
