Whenever I open a file with Kate, Kate opens in Split view showing the same file twice. Does any of you guys know how to turn split-view off by default? it's really annoying to turn it off manually everytime.
This is not a bug, its a "feature"!
Kate remembers the last view you had open when you save a document and tries to restore it as it was from it.
To revert that effect you need to close the current views using the View > Split View > Close Current View menu and then use the Sessions > Save Session option.
After you have done this Kate will open with a the session as you left it.
