Hello everyone.

We all know that when you open the inventory in RPG Maker there are 2 o more tabs.

If you select a category with the mouse, you position on some item that you have it, but if from there you want to select the other tab with the mouse, nothing happens, you must leave the category with the ESC key and then select the other tab.

This is somewhat cumbersome and awkward, is there a way or script that allows me to switch (with mouseI) between selected tabs without exiting each tab by pressing the ESC key?

I am using the falcao mouse script:

Please, see this video:

In my opinion no.
Maybe somebody can masterfully code it in a way that has the command window & and item window activated all the time, but not possible as far as I know.

When you select the category, the item window becomes active and the category window becomes inactive.

I can do a test to see if not deactivating the command window will work. But I don't know if VX Ace will allow two windows active at the same time.

A quick test proved not possible.
I was able to get the category window to be active and change the items, but you then were never able to select items.

It would be great if you tried to do something.

Games like stardew valley or management games for example, you can switch between tabs easily, that's why people who haven't played RPG Maker games complain about such awkward tab switching.

What if you could switch tabs by pressing the L or R button?
Would that help you somehow?

If it's already inconvenient to have to use the ESC key to exit a tab, imagine using other keys that the player has no idea how to use.

The ideal would be to be able to switch tabs with the mouse.

Am I missing something here? While I understand you want to "Left Click" on the other tab for the selection to be in the next category, the "Right Click" does a cancel or close window effect. I take it you want the user playing the game to never need the keyboard and I do not see why using the "Right Click" is not a feasible option.
