Find In Files Behavior
« on: April 26, 2018, 11:19:47 pm »
When I use find in files and there are matches on multiple files, I can click on a match within a file.  A tab opens in the edit window and I can edit the matched instance.  When I go to click on another match in a different file, the original tab is replaced by the new file and one tab only remains, and it is the new file.  How can I keep the original tab and have a 2nd tab opened up when I click on a match in another file?

In tools -> options -> editing -> editor windows, for Files per window, select one file per window; for "hide tabs when one window" select "auto".  Close the options dialog.  Use the zoom-window command to show or hide the file tabs.  The buffers tab in the Files toolbar also shows all of your open files.  There's also a small down arrow at the right hand end of the tabs  - click it to see a list of your editor windows - or run the command document-tab-list-buffers.
