It’s kind of what I have resorted to. I went and created a new top level admin page and added the ACF subpages to that.
If there was a hook at the top of the page, I could actually hook the tabs markup in there and have them behaving as though they were a tabbed group of pages. The markup can simply be copied across from themes.php.
I also noticed that I can assign the ACF subpages’ parent property to that of a page that is already a second level menu item. e.g. Widgets.php, or even a page that doesn’t exist such as adfasfdgsdfgsdfg.php. This seems like a great way to hide the pages if you don’t want them appearing in the menu. This would be perfect for usage with the tabs, if only there were a hook 😉
Maybe in a future version?
