New Share tab location in top bar is very inconvenient
I share often to see my design results. The share UI and share tab are now far apart so it has become a very frustrating workflow to go back and forth between tabs and the share UI panel. And there doesn't seem to be a keyboard shortcut to share that works (I'm on a PC).
Thanks for your feedback! I’d love to get a concrete suggestion as to how you’d want this to be fixed. There’s already a keyboard shortcut (you can cycle through tabs by using Ctrl+Tab).

The Share tab is just another extreme example of indecisive interface design.
It's a silly entry to a feature which doesn't even belong in that cluster of two tabs.
And it spoils the swift use of keystrokes to toggle between Design and Prototype.
All this mess with hamburger (or dotted) icons and scattered tabs in stead of normal menus, is due to a Microsoft interface innovation called UWP https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/. One of its intentions is to hide menus and prevent clutter. Which doesn't work because now we see tabs and panels popping up everywhere, re-inventing various menu systems which they tried so hard to get rid of...
hello, any update about it? thank you!
Hi Elaine, it seems to be another side-effect of the Ctrl-Tab linear switcher:
- for Steve, it has to do with going directly to the Share mode, when he wants to.
- for me, it is about being constantly forced through the Share tab, while cycling between Design and Prototype.
I believe both could be solved with a suggestion i've made - direct shortcuts for tabs/workspaces:
I really hope you could have a look at this situation!
Move the Share tab back to the right so it is closer to the Share panel.
I have not used Ctrl+Tab to get back and forth... I start using that. Thanks!
I have already posted and voted on other posts about a somewhat similar issue, which is switching tabs with CTRL+TAB, forcing through the new Share tab.
