Comfortable designing and prepress engineering require multidocument interface: often resulted films are compound of several drawing part. Classic win32 apps like CorelDRAW, Illustrator and Xara have such feature. Also this issue is linked with copy/paste operation. Under Win32 environment clipboard can contains various data. X11 clipboard data usually stores plain text. Inkscape solves this problem using "own window for each document" scheme and has own clipboard for copied object inside this window pool. But we often hear from designers: "No win-style MDI! We need tabs like in Firefox!" Gnome SDI even is not discussed. Sorry, we know there are many HIG fans, but it seems designers are not :).

Well, we try introducing tabs based UI in sK1. Code still is not perfect and unstable, we don't know whether it will be in release or no...
