Opening files in new tab (instead of new window)

Opening files in new tab (instead of new window)

Postby milstanyu on Fri Apr 06, 2012 10:08 am

Is it possible to set SublimeText 2 on Mac to never open a new window and to always open files in new tabs when I double-click on them in Finder. I know I can drag-drop files into SublimeText but it's kinda slow...

Thanks
Milos

The open_files_in_new_window setting controls this

Open settings (Cmnd+,), then add the following line between { }:
"open_files_in_new_window": false

This really should be the default behavior. However, I probably wouldn't have learned about this preference file if I didn't find this in the forum. :-P
