Currently: Each time a design element is opened a tab is created to the right of any existing tabs.  Opening more than a certain number of design elements results in a drop-down appearing on the far-right.
The problem with this is that the latest opened elements are likely to be the ones you currently need most  - right?
I think there could be a simple but productive improvement, by intelligently sorting the most used / most recently opened design element tabs to the left.  This scheme could be augmented by a kind of progressively fading background colouring of tabs based on how long they've been open / most used.  The background could fade progressively indicating reduced usage, eventually dropping off into the drop-down menu on the right.
This amounts to a kind of UI visual cue system that can be described as a Heat Map of activity.
Too fancy?  I think it could really work and could be useful in the Notes Client aswell.
