newly opened files do not appear in new tab
« on: April 26, 2013, 05:50:33 pm »
I tried to replicate the actions shown in the video about how to use the new MDI features. If I start with an empty editing window and open a file, it appears in the window along with a tab containing its name. If I now open a second file, the original goes away and is replaced with the new file/tab. I do not get the behavior shown in the video, where each time a file is opened it gets a new tab.

I looked around in the Options menu to see if I needed to change some setting, but could not find anything that looked pertinent. What could I be doing wrong?

You need to turn ON One-file-per-window (Tools>Options>Editor Windows, Files per window).

I will factor this into the other problem you posted about.

Also, if you turn on One-file-per-window, then you will probably want to hide the File Tabs tool window, since it would be redundant and confusing.
