Hello,

When clicking on the + Sign on the Tab Bar to create another browser view, the new tab instead opens with the text editor showing a new, untitled document.

Any idea of what I might have configured wrong / any suggestions on how to fix this?
I'm using the most current v7.6.2 of PF.

Thanks,
- Oliver

    Hi Oliver, 

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    I will test some settings on my side to provide you with instructions on how to fix this. 

    Meanwhile, could you please provide me with a screenshot of the new, untitled document that contains the text editor?
    Also, does using cmd+T result in the same outcome? 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jordan,

    I'm attaching a screenshot. Please note that I am not talking about the tabs within a browser pane (the ones you add with cmd+T), but the bigger ones that you see selecting View -> Show Tab Bar. I have highlighted them in the screenshot.

    Thanks / Oliver

    Hi Oliver, 

    Thank you for providing me with a screenshot. 

    I see now. It does create a new text file. 
    Could you please provide me with additional details, what's your case of using Tab Bar? 
    Do you expect to see a separate set of tabs there? 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Yes, I expect to see a separate set of tabs there, and this is how I used it before. But it may have been on another Mac. I need to check.

    The use case is to have different sets of tabs for projects. So, I would use the tabs at the tab bar level to distinguish between Project A, B, and C. The "sub-tabs" then point to different folders used by each project, such as project plans, documentation, etc.

    In the past I have used multiple PF windows for this, but it is a bit tedious to circle through the windows using CMD+` I find using the tab bar much more efficient.

    Otherwise, I will request developers' attention with a bug report. 
    In this case, please expect a fix in further versions of PathFinder.
