Configuring Behavior of the Editor Tabs

On this page:

Changing the number of editor tabs

To change the maximum allowed number of tabs

  1. Open the Editor settings. To do that, click settings on the main toolbar, then click the Editor node in the Setting/Preferences dialog box that opens.
  2. In the Editor Tabs page of the Editor settings (Settings/Preferences - Editor - General - Editor Tabs), type the desired maximum allowed number of the editor tabs to be opened at a time in the Tab limit field.

Disabling editor tabs

To disable editor tabs

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

Tips and tricks

  • 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.
  • With the disabled tabs, use the View | Recent files (Ctrl+E) command to quickly switch between files.
