MPS Web Help

Every time you open a file for editing, a dedicated tab is added to the editor window, next to the active editor tab. By default, when the number of tabs reaches its limit, the editor closes the tabs according to the tab closing policy.

You can change the way MPS handles the editor tabs in the Editor dialog box.

To change the maximum allowed number of tabs
  1. Open the Editor settings. To do that, click on the main toolbar, then click the Editor node in the Settings dialog box, that opens.

  2. In the Editor Tabs page of the Editor settings, type the desired maximum allowed number of the editor tabs to be opened at a time in the Tab limit field.

    If the tab limit equals to 1, the tabs will be disabled. If you want the editor to never close the tabs, type some unreachable number.

To disable editor tabs
  • In the Editor Tabs page of the Editor settings, select None from the Tab placement drop-down list.

    With the disabled tabs, use the Recent files (UsageView.ShowRecentFindUsagesUsageView.ShowRecentFindUsages) command to quickly switch between files.
