I would really like to see the attribute tables open up individually as in older versions. I QC many features and their attributes at the same time and even though I can stack them in all kinds of different ways in a single table, it's just not as efficient. It's like what was done to Excel. I have to add an extra step in order to separate the tables.
This idea has been merged with Allow attribute table tab to open in a new window in ArcGIS 10.
I need that freedom to move and stack the attribute tables as I need and would like an alternative method option in newer desktop versions.
