Display tabs on mutliple rows
« on: June 28, 2017, 09:47:45 am »
Hello,
Is it possible to display the tabs of opened files on multiple rows so that they are all visible ?
I could find an old and long thread https://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,572.0.html but apparently it got nowhere.
Thanks and regards.

We don't have this... Here is what you could try:  Go to View>Tool Windows>Files, and then dock that to whatever side you like.  If you dock it to the right, you can see all of the files that are open. 

If you don't want to dock it, in CUA emulation this is bound to Ctrl+Shift+B.  This is how I work, I zoom the window so that the tabs aren't visible because I prefer to have the screen real estate for code.

Hi Dan,
Thanks for your relpy.
I had also thought I could do this, but the window you mentioned is not dockable, unless I miss something...

OK my mistake. I found the 'Dockable' option in contextual menu (right-click).
That is perfect for me.
Thanks again.

Sorry, I thought the default was dockable.

If you get annoyed with the amount screen it takes up, I really would try it on a key.  If you don't like the default binding, you can just bind "list-buffers" to another key.

Another command to try is "document-tabs-list-buffers".  This works a lot like the list-buffers command, but drops down the list-box on your document tabs instead of bring up a whole tool window.
