You can create your own Toolbox tabs to store practically whatever you want in them. For that upcoming presentation, you can create your own tab by choosing the Add tab on the Toolbox context menu and adding content by using either the mouse or keyboard to populate content into your new tab. (Yes, the keyboard works too for cutting and pasting code from the editor into the Toolbox.)

She was going to create another tip called “Did you know you can move tabs?” but it doesn’t really stand on its own as a separate tip. As she’s writing this, she still has three hours of battery life left for her plane flight, and the plane attendant people (she can’t spell what they are called, and her row-seat neighbors are tired of playing human dictionary for her) just served brownies.

You can drag and drop Toolbox tabs to new locations in the list, and their location will persist.
