I have a long standing habit of closing documents, views, and databases with the Escape key.  Since moving to Notes 8, I find that I frequently close databases that I intended to keep open.  With the 'workspace' this wasn't much of a problem because I could re-open the database with a single click.  Now, with Notes 8, it takes several clicks.
I would like to right-click on a tab and select 'Pin this Tab'.  Then, if I click the X or hit Escape to close the tab, I would be prompted, "Do you really want to close this tab?".

This is a great idea - since using the first early betas of Notes 8x, I have found myself hitting Escape numerous times to close windows, then realised both the Home and Workspace tabs have closed - and I want to keep them permanently open.

It's got my vote!

This is a good solution to the idea I put up about preventing the accidental closure of the home page

Vote for both! :-)

You might try the following to assist in the mean time:
(1) Right-click on the Open Button to Dock the Open List -- then you'll have single click to your most important apps and two clicks to apps insides folders
(2) Create a Bookmark folder called pinded apps and place the bookmarks in there
(3) Put the application into the Startup folder, so that it will automatically open each time you launch the client
(4) Experiment with the My Work Launcher

Depending on what you want to do, this just might help. Good luck.

@3 - Thanks for the tips. I'm about to get used to the new interface. Pinning a few tabs would make it a much easier transition.
