File Tabs not available
« on: August 12, 2019, 08:04:24 am »
I cannot find 'file tabs'. The documentation says they can be toggled via View | Tool Windows | File Tabs, but I do not see a 'File Tabs' entry in the View | Tool Windows menu.

Version: SlickEdit Pro 2019 (v24.0.0.3 64-bit). Downloaded today. No further updates available.

That does appear to be a bug.  File Tabs should be there.

Quick question:  In Tools > Options... > Editing > Editor Windows > "File per window", are you using the "Multiple Files share window" ?  Unless you are using that setting, there is no real reason to use the old legacy File Tabs tool window, because the newer document tabs are much, much better.

I was also going to post this bug.
And I do use the 'multiple documents share the same window' setting, so having the file tabs is something I use all the time.

This will be fixed in the next beta.  Thanks for reporting this.
