I had a google doc shared with me where the owner had added tabs. Super cool. I cannot find anywhere to add this to existing documents. It essentially makes a Google Doc into a tabbed document. Kind of like a OneNote document. I find myself in a backwater of unsearchable generic terms.

The Doc looks like the attached image. Any idea to enable this for existing documents? Or documentation on it?
