hover time when dragging over a tab

#1
I often combine cdd/t and tcfilter to display a limited set of files in the file view. When I drag a file from to file view, dragging over a tab activates its tab window immediately. Often this is not what I want: I drag to some other application (possibly in Windows Task Bar) and don't want TCMD's tab to change, the problem is just that the tabs are on top and close to the file view. I have to take care to drag on a path avoiding the tabs.

Suggestion: apply some delay defore changing the tab. (It could be linked to the value that is set with TweakUI / Mouse / hover.)

Alternately, provide an option to put the tabs on the side of the "console
pane" furthest from the file view. It might also make sense to allow the
file view to be below the console pane.

You can already do both of these. Options / Configure Take Command / Tabs / Tab Location to move the tabs to the bottom, right, etc. As for the List View pane, just drag it by the title bar, and dock it wherever.

That's the answer to the OP - move the panes or the tabs around so that
dragging will not go through a tab.

This is a Windows feature, not Take Command. (Other apps, such as
Visual Studio, behave the same way.)

Presumably Microsoft's thinking is that you can drag over a specific tab
if you want to drop something into a non-active tab window.
