Currently the editor's tabs only have the ability to scroll between pages using the scroll arrows.  With many open pages, this becomes tedious.  The default Gtk Notebook popup provides the ability to switch to open editor pages via the context menu on right click.  However, currently the SQL editor redefines that context menu.  It would be nice if this functionality was included.

How to repeat:
-Open SQL Editor pages
-Right-click on the page label and there are no pages listed

To see the Gtk Notebook behavior in linux, add "_editor_note->popup_enable();" in frontend/linux/workbench/sqlide_form.cpp.  Here you see page navigation in the context menu which draws on top of the SQL Editor context menu.

Hello Grant Roch,

Thank you for the feature request!
Other workaround is to use Ctr+ATB/Ctr+Shift+TAB.
