Is it possible to arrange multiple attribute tables in tabs in QGIS?

It annoys me that when opening a new attribute table it appears beside the old ones and even shifts other parts of the GUI around if there is a lack of space.


You put the attribute table into a dock widget in settings => options => data sources. Docks can easily be stacked as tabs.

There is still a manual process to it to stack the two tables. As far as I know it's not possible to do this automatically (yet).

  • Thanks, this helped me. I like to see an option to make table stacking in tabs the default behaviour. – sedot Jul 20 '16 at 23:09

In QGIS 3.14, they will open as tabs by default.

If the option "Open new attribute tables as dock windows" is active, new attribute tables will be open as tabs on top of other existing attribute tables.
