I've got Hillbilly Tabs working great in my on-prem 2013 environment. The only issue I'm running into is with selecting items or documents in the web parts when they are inside tabs. This seems to be a known bug and I wanted to see if the StackExchange community had any insight.
The normal functionality in a web part allows a user to select many items at random and then perform an operation from the ribbon, like delete or check-in. When the web parts are inside tabs, the functionality is buggy. For example, I select 2 items and then when the 3rd item is selected, the other 2 are arbitrarily deselected. Very strange behavior. Has anyone else run into this and found a fix?
I also tried using App Parts instead of web parts and different page layouts, all with the same result. When I remove them from tabs, they function as expected and I can select any number of items without any others deselecting. Select all items works in all cases. I've tried 3 different versions of JQuery, with and without JQueryUI, and custom themed JQuery UI, all with the same bugginess.
On the Author's website, someone asked the same question.

Hello Mrackley, We are using the Hillbilly tabs on our SP2013 pages and it is very nice. The only thing we found is not able to do multiple selections of items on the web parts within the tabs. If I select more than two items, all items get deselected and only the last clicked item will be selected.
I was searching the if there is any workaround for this and didn’t find any solution. Will you be able to shed some light on these issue.
And the response.

this is a known limitation of the solution, I have not had the time to determine if a workaround is possible.
Any suggestions or advice is much appreciated!
