I'd really like to have the ability to add Lyrics as Tab.
Thanks

Where tabs normally are: on top row, where music, now playing and music explorer are.

You know you can add Lyrics as a sidebar panel, right?

Yeah, but that takes away space from the playlist.

You can have tabs in panels, just check the "stack" box for elements you want to arrange in tabs, and also activate "ticked elements are displayed as tabs" on the right side of the same menu. (See the arrange panels menu here: https://musicbee.fandom.com/wiki/The_Anatomy_of_MusicBee?file=Panels_Configuration.png)

You could also put lyrics in a floating panel, or another panel like "right main panel" instead of the right panel.

MusicBee's strength and weakness is the sheer number of options. I bet if you play around enough you'll find something that works for you.

Thanks for the suggestion and the link to the image so that I could better understand what window you were referring to. Well, floating window for lyrics is honestly quite a pain as it's always in the way.

I was about to write this: As for panel configuration, there's nothing really where to show lyrics in a click without taking space away from other panels. That's why I still think it would be good to either have a lyrics tab next to music explorer, now playing, etc. or integrate lyrics into the now playing tab.
But I've just found out this while writing this comment: I can set "lyrics" to be shown in "playing now" tab instead of "tracks playing". Problem solved. Thank you very much for your help :D
